7. The Atom Syndication Format > 7.2. The Atom Entry Document in Detail

The Atom Entry Document in Detail

Now that you have the building blocks of Atom, let’s move on to the details. We’ll first look at the standard elements of an Atom entry document.

Atom entry documents not only make up the bulk of an Atom feed but are also used as the transport for the Atom Publishing API and as a format for web site archives. For example, using the Atom entry document format as an archive template for your weblog seems an increasingly good idea.

The Elements of Atom Entry

Within an Atom entry document, the entry element is the root, which must have a version attribute to denote the version of Atom you are deploying. This book is based on the draft-05, whose version identifier is draft-ietf-atompub-format-05: do not deploy. Subtlety isn’t its strong point, you have to admit. This element may also contain any number of XML namespace declarations for the use of other XML vocabularies. I cover this in Chapter 11.
