It’s just data

Podcasting Specifications Update

Steve Harris: A much more clear, consistent and readable specification for the iTunes RSS Specification is now available, dated 7/7/2005: [link]

The previous specification appears to be gone. (Google Cache in HTML format)

Additionally: guid is now recommended for any entries which contain a podcast (excellent).

enclosure is limited to five supported extensions.  Apparently, file extensions are used instead of the type attribute.  The latter would have seemed to be more general purpose.

The wording recommending utf-8 seems to be stronger now.

I’ll try to get these changes into the FeedValidator by tomorrow.
