Another question, may I define my custom variable in "item" ? If I publish it, the other RSS reader will accept my custom item ?
Most likely not! unless you write the reader yourself I dont know if it would even qualify to be called RSS then.
But if the Reader does not perform validation then your RSS feed may be accepted. Looking into the src of an OS reader Informa I found that they dont perform validation. I suppose the custom variable will be ignored by it. [ August 01, 2005: Message edited by: Rajagopal Manohar ]
