    That looks like someone thought “I know, I’ll use angle brackets and I’ll be like all the cool pros.”

    Contrast Google Sitemaps. Sure, a non-standard format cooked up by Google and for Google, but it’s actual XML, it has a spec, and it makes sense. (Okay, they refuse to accept UTF-16, which a compliant parser must; and if you’re Asian, then to you that’s probably more than the minor slip the rest of the world considers it.)

    • I just hacked my way through programming the IDIF files for a site and I was wandering, forelorn and sad, around the web wondering "how the heck do I validate this mess?"

      And it really is a mess. I have gone, line by line, through their example and compared their output to mine and the two do seem to correspond, but their example has a half a dozen obvious errors, so who knows what I missed?
