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"?>

<feed version="0.3" xmlns="" xml:lang=" en">
    <title>My Revenge</title>

    <link rel=" alternate" type=" text/html" href="" />
    <tagline>Dedicated to having our revenge</tagline>
    <copyright>Copyright (c) 2005</copyright>
        <title>At last!</title>
        <link rel=" alternate" type=" text/html" href="
  " />
            <name>Darth Maul</name>
        <content type=" text/html" xml:lang=" en" xml:base="">
            At last we will reveal ourselves to the Jedi. At last we will have
            our revenge.
