Hanover, MA (PRWEB) January 5, 2006
NotePage, Inc. is pleased to announce the compilation of an RSS extensions directory. RSS is the standard for online information and news syndication.
The RSS specification allows users to create and use their own custom elements (tags) in any RSS feed, by declaring a namespace. Namespace extensions allow for RSS feeds to be extended to include additional information. An RSS feed that uses a namespace will validate, just as a feed that does not include a namespace.
The namespace directory is a free information directory containing namespace extension details. The directory is designed to be a central repository for namespace extensions. The intent of the directory is to help prevent redundancy and assist users with the process of extending RSS 2.0.
The namespace directory contains detailed steps on creating a namespace extension. While anyone can create a namespace, users are encouraged to a specific and well-planned reason to do so. It is important to realize that RSS readers or RSS processing applications will be unable to use the namespace information unless they were specifically designed to support the custom information.
The directory currently contains popular namespaces like: iTunes, MediaRSS, and Microsoft Simple Lists. Companies with namespaces can submit their extensions by emailing.
Additional details related to the namespace directory can be found at: http://www.feedforall.com/directory-namespace.htm
