Sam Ruby contributed a wonderful bit of automagic that "does the right thing" in your Atom feed, based on whether a given entry is well-formed or not. You can verify this by viewing-source in my feed. This actually shows off a capability of Atom that doesn't (to my knowledge) exist in RSS -- namely, that encoding can vary
entry within a given
feed. (If I've missed something obvious and this isn't true, feel free to correct me in the comments.)
I've included Sam's plugin in a revised flavour pack. Another improvement -- it doesn't assume US English anymore (duh, sorry about that) -- it now uses
blog_language like it should have in the first place.
Real computer scientists don’t program in assembler. They don’t write
in anything less portable than a number two pencil.
