New Namespace Directory Launched
- January, 2006 - NotePage,
Inc. is pleased to announce the compilation of
an RSS extensions directory. RSS is the standard
for online information and news syndication.
The RSS specification allows users to create and
use their own custom elements (tags) in any RSS
feed, by declaring a namespace. Namespace extensions
allow for RSS feeds to be extended to include
additional information. An RSS feed that uses
a namespace will validate, just as a feed that
does not include a namespace.
The namespace directory is a free information
directory containing namespace extension details.
The directory is designed to be a central repository
for namespace extensions. The intent of the directory
is to help prevent redundancy and assist users
with the process of extending RSS 2.0.
The namespace directory contains detailed steps
on creating a namespace extension. While anyone
can create a namespace, users are encouraged to
a specific and well-planned reason to do so. It
is important to realize that RSS readers or RSS
processing applications will be unable to use
the namespace information unless they were specifically
designed to support the custom information.
The directory currently contains popular namespaces
like: iTunes, MediaRSS, and Microsoft Simple Lists.
Companies with namespaces can submit their extensions
by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org
