Ahh the 40. So many choices, so little time.

Movable type really needs to not strip out links in its'
excerpts for rss and junk.

Since I started messing around with my own RSS aggregator, I've seen very few sites do useful RSS feeds. Most of the sites seem to skip out a lot of the stuff that makes RSS useful, like timestamps on posts and what not. And I'm finding that a lot of these sites are using boilerplate code like MT or whatever - Blogger is particularly offensive in this respect, feeding out non-compliant XML among its many other faults.

Of course, now that I look at it, my own partly-hand-generated feed doesn't datestamp the individual entries. Oh dear.

MT's boilerplate is annoying but useful, I put the rdf up as the link instead of the rss-xml, something of a six-one half-dozen the other situation.

But even my unemployed bored self isn't motivated enough to fix things...
