Permission to use, copy, modify and distribute the RSS 1.0 Specification Proposal and its accompanying documentation for any purpose and without fee is hereby granted in perpetuity, provided that the above copyright notice and this paragraph appear in all copies. The copyright holders make no representation about the suitability of the specification for any purpose. It is provided "as is" without expressed or implied warranty.

This copyright applies to the RSS 1.0 Specification Proposal and accompanying documentation and does not extend to the RSS format itself.


The RSS091 provides sideways compatibility with RSS 0.91 by providing a modularized version of the elements added to 0.91. Note that RSS 1.0 does indeed provide an item-level description element, borrowed from RSS 0.91 owing to the ubiquity of this one particular element; you'll note that the RSS091 module does, however, still contain its own compartmentalized copy of an item-level description element.

For more specifics on RSS 0.91, please refer to the RSS specifications in the Resources section of the RSS 1.0 Specification Proposal.

    <title>Processing Inclusions with XSLT</title>
