RSS aggregator bug in google, yahoo, msn

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

i just discovered bugs in rss aggregator in,, .

For, it won't understand validated atom 1.

For, it won't understand relative links unless you have
xml:base in your atom.xml.

For, it won't understand relative links, period, regardless
whether you have xml:base.

According to the Atom spec
on relative links which defers to
, a atom doc without explicit xml:base should take the base as the path
the doc is gotton. (just as with html files)

So, it seems to me google's behavior is wrong.

for more info about Atom, see (standard)

for a test atom.xml, see
