5. RSS 1.0 > 5.5. The Specification in Detail

The Specification in Detail

This section is based on the RSS 1.0 Specification, Version 1.3.4, dated May 30, 2001. The full document is available at http://purl.org/rss/1.0/spec.

The Basic Structure

As we’ve seen, RSS 1.0’s structure differs from the earlier versions of RSS by bringing the item, image, and textinput elements to the same level as channel. Examples Example 5-5 and Example 5-6 show this difference in their basic structures.

Example 5-5. The basic structure of RSS 0.9x
<rss>
<channel>
   <image/>
   <textinput/>
   <item/>
   <item/>
   <item/>
</channel>
</rss>
Example 5-6. The basic structure of RSS 1.0
<rdf>
  <channel/>
  <image/>
  <textinput/>
  <item/>
  <item/>
  <item/>
</rdf>

This difference both results from, and necessitates, the use of RDF notation to define the relationships between the elements.
