Nope. The competition for "entry-title" was "fn". The reason we didn't
go with "fn" was that we decided that the concept of a title of a blog
post -- i.e. what "fn" means -- wasn't always what you'd see on the

For example, Dave Winer uses _something_ like <h3>2007/06/09 Here's a
Blog Post</h3> on his blog. This is the "entry-title", but the "fn" of
the post is "Here's a Blog Post".

Regards, etc...

PS. I regret this decision a little, but not too much -- in
retrospect, 80/20 rule would make it "fn"
