A.4 Overview: RSS 1.0 Elements

A.4.1 Preliminary Notes

The RSS namespace is defined by the URI http://purl.org/rss/1.0/ as well. The address of the RDF validators is http://www.w3.org/RDF/Validator/. John Reagle created the Relax NG schema, which is used to explain the elements. The URI is http://www.w3.org/2002/09/rss-rng/. It was transferred with Trang in the complete Relax NG syntax, and was revised slightly.

As protocol schemas for URIs, RSS 1.0 only allows http:, https:, ftp:, and mailto: within text-input fields.

Concerning the MIME type, the specification talks about application/xml.

A certain data extension is not necessary; .xml and—preferably—.rdf are recommended.
