I posted some XSL stylesheets for munging Atom (0.3)

— into RSS 1.0 and RSS 2.0 . At the moment there are only stylesheets for munging so-called minimal Atom feeds. I will get around to the fancier feeds, but don't hold your breath. If someone wants to take the work and run with it, please feel free to do so.

Update: Well, this proved to be a pretty trivial task. I have munged about 98% of a maximal Atom feed into RSS 1.0. I don't expect the multipart content feed or the RSS 2.0 stylesheet to be anymore complicated. I guess I will try and post all of this tomorrow morning.

Up your date: So, it's all done. Save the widget to convert a W3CDTF date string to a RFC822 date string which is making me feel, well, funky. Fortunately, someone else has already done most of the heavy lifting . Oh yeah, and some kind of kludge to deal with the fact the XSL spec seems to be seriously brain-dead when it comes to generating <![CDATA[ ]]> sections. But not tonight — there is a hockey game to watch...

Is that a date in your pocket? Steve Ball is my hero, even if the markup:cdata-section template is broken. And it goes without saying that the logic for fussing with dates in RSS 2.0 will result in bug reports. Life sucks — but often less than date processing. I will finish up some rudimentary documentation and post a tar ball this afternoon (Sunday.)

Please god, can we find something else to argue about now?
