Validating rss feed
Currently, I'm using xml_domit_rss as the parser but I'm unsure if it's actually validating the URL before parsing.
But be aware that the ranges are pretty large to accommodate the needs of different individuals within a certain weight range.Anyone have some insight into either how XML_domit_rss validates, or a method by which I can validate before sending the URL to the parser? Validating in the context of XML files (and hence RSS/Atom feeds which use XML to encode the values) means to use a document schema which describes the expected structure of the XML file (which elements can have what child elements, what attributes can be present, etc).Now some XML parsers require a schema and bork (this is a technical term :-) - refuse to parse) on XML files not conforming to the schema.If you choose to participate, the online survey will be presented to you when you leave the Msdn Web site. This service tests the validity of a Really Simple Syndication feed, checking to see that it follows the rules of the RSS specification.
