Subject: Anything special about RSS feeds in website ?
Hi, I was experimenting with RSS feeds, trying to incorporate them in a db website structure, by simply adapting the example rss.xml. But I run into strange results. If I don't get an error, I just get "empty" content (eg no feed data). I have verified that downloading the RSS url does indeed show available content. Maybe the problem is with my xsl processing instruction ? That would look like SGML_CATALOG_FILES=/etc/sgml/catalog xsltproc --catalogs --maxdepth 999 \ --output rss.html --stringparam output-root . mytabsite.xsl rss.xml On some RSS feeds (eg <rss feed="http://nwalsh.com/rss/whatsnew.xml"/>) I get the error Error Undefined namespace prefix xmlXPathCompiledEval: evaluation failed What does that mean ? And another error: http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/news/xmlnews.xml:373: error: xmlParseEntityRef: expecting ';' <title>Iraq R&R: Soldiers Receive Break</title> ^ RSS Failed: http://abclocal.go.com/wpvi/news/xmlnews.xml Is than RSS version conflict ? Also some sites provide RSS and RDF xml data. How should one proceed in such a case ? Sorry for that many questions, but the learning curve is steep and I haven't yet found any compelling documentation. Cheers, Marc Baaden
