Microsoft is planning to extend the RSS (Really Simple Syndication) standard to better support the publishing of ordered lists of information, a company spokesperson says.
Gary Schare, director of strategic product management in the Windows division of Microsoft, says that while RSS is a reliable standard for updating information in message form, it currently has no logical way to organize that information in a way that could help subscribers keep track of what is being fed to them.
Didn’t they “extend” HTML back in the day along with Netscape? It only took a couple of years and new sets of standards to fix that fiasco. Why not do it again I suppose is their thinking?
