What is an ATOM feed?
ATOM is a kind of markup language (XML) that tags news content with
various definitions. For
example, it can be used to tag the main structures of a story – the
headline, byline, etc. This tagging
makes it easy for AP to feed members’ copy into the enrichment
systems. AP’s iATOM is a variant of
ATOM. It contains the full text of stories, rather than just a link
to the full text. In AP Content
Enrichment, iATOM is the preferred type of feed.
What is the “ATOM specification?”
It is AP’s technical specification/description for iATOM, our
preferred method for receiving content.
Anybody know anything else about this?
