   RSS 3.0 looks great. Love the focus on plain text and keeping it simple.

   Compared to the new Feed.txt [1] the "old" RSS 3.0 might too simple
e.g. the rule about indenting your content in multi-line values look
like not practical that easy will break things.

  Feed.txt has proper dividers for blocks and content but otherwise
keeps the simplicity that looks like a joke ;-)


|>>>   starts a feed
</>     divides a content block
----      ends a meta data block
<<<|   ends a feed

   That's it. To use multi-line content just "paste" it into your
feed. No encoding or indendation rules. Keep it simple. Maybe rebrand
it as RSS 5.0 or something ;-) Cheers.
