  • That Atom feed is somewhat suboptimal.

    • type="text" is basically just inline text. You should expect no particular formatting. (Saying type="text" is the same as omitting it altogether, btw.) Using type="text/plain" is more appropriate in that case. Note however that this is only valid for the <content> element. Your most interoperable bet is to stick the whole thing in type="html" with <pre> tags in the HTML.

    • Further, you could include <link rel="enclosure" ... /> links in the entries, which are the Atom equivalent to RSS’s <enclosure> tag.

    • Thanks VERY much for the feedback. I fixed the content tag. I will also add the enclosure links in the next version.

      Man, I've really learned a lot in this project!!!
