Mihai Parparita: Blogs hosted on MSDN seem to have started
to generate Atom 1.0 recently. However, perhaps due to a misreading
of the Atom 1.0 spec, each entry contains a link node with the
relation set to “self” when pointing to the HTML
version of it (instead of "alternate").
Google Groups did this for a while too when it switched to
Atom 1.0, so it seems to be a common error with developers that are
just starting out with Atom generation. It would be nice if the
validator could flag these errors.
Thank you Sam for your work on the Atom Feed Validator. It was very helpful in correcting those issues in the Atom 1.0 feeds.
Community Server 2.0, which is currently in Beta, generates Atom 1.0 feeds. We updated MSDN & Technet blogs with CS 2.0 last week, and pushed out an update this past Saturday night (Feb 4) that corrected those two errors you mentioned.
