That's exactly what I've been trying to do at http://sobac.com/pawha/ except that I have in the
ication%2Fxml&tidy=yes" type="application/atom+xml" title="Park Avenue West Homeowners

I code the page by hand, so creating an extra Atom feed is onerous. Much better to have some
software do it for me.
I tried to use the hatom parser at http://tools.blogmatrix.com/extract but it appears to be

http://microformats.org/wiki/hatom#Implementations ; if anyone can confirm that this is really
defunct I'll update the Wiki.
