Hi Ryan and Geof,
In Atom ... which seems to me to provide a reasonable definition for
blogable content ... you'd probably want to call your enclosure element
"entry". The permalink is a little more problematic ... I decided that
"entrylink" seemed to make as more sense than the alternatives.
Did you try the Greasemonkey script I mailed out this morning? You
should be able to tweak it to quickly identify the posts (I'm using
"xentry" for the top level item, but that's certainly subject to
change). In either case, you can see the argument for settling this out.
"summary" is very nice, and also part of the Atom standard; it then
differentiates between the full content ("content") and a part of it.
