Avoid Including Only Titles


In the early days of RSS, feeds often included items that contained just titles and a link to the full story:

    <?xml version="1.0"?>    <!DOCTYPE rss SYSTEM     "http://my.netscape.com/publish/formats/rss-0.91.dtd">    <rss version="0.91">     <channel>           .           .           .       <skipDays>        <day>Sunday</day>       </skipDays>                <item>        <title>Steve shovels the snow</title>        <link>http://www.rssmaniac.com/steve</link>       </item>       <textinput>           <title>Search for other items</title>           <description>What do you want to find?</description>           <name>search</name>           <link>http://www.rssmaniac.com/find.php</link>         </textinput>       </channel>    </rss> 


These days, however, RSS items need more than titles. Items should always have a description.
