mod_taxonomy

Synopsis

mod_taxonomy allows the classification of objects under a defined taxonomic scheme; basically, you describe the topics of your objects.

The object can be anything: a channel, an item, or a reference from another module. Because of this universality, mod_taxonomy can be used heavily throughout an RSS 1.0 feed, which may cause some confusion. As with many modules, a good bit of reformatting may help clarify things.

The taxonomic definitions are always given as URIs. As shown in Chapter 5, URIs are used, like namespaces, to differentiate between homonyms. Python (the language) and Python (the snake) need to be distinguished, because you may want to run away from one of them. Snakes are generally cuddly, after all.
