Atom

Atom is the newest entry to the syndication scene. Since its inception, Atom has received quite a bit of coverage and usage. Atom, unlike RSS, is a strict specification. One of the problems of the RSS spec is the lack of information on how a developer handles HTML markup in its elements. Atom's specification addresses this issue and gives developers strict rules they must follow, as well as a host of new features, enabling developers to choose the content type of an element and specify attributes that designate how a specific element should be handled. With such features, it is no wonder powerhouses like Google and Movable Type are getting behind Atom.

Atom resembles RSS somewhat; aside from the different element names, the document structure is also different:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding=" iso-8859-1"?>
