Parsing XML With PHP

by Marc Robards

Towards a new syndication format

Looks like the Echo Project Roadmap is getting a pretty wide acceptance in what we probably could call the ~`blogging industry'~ by now.

I definitely plan to support Echo in b2evolution... RSS has been such a mess for such a long time... something really has to change...

(I hope they'll move this project to some decent place though... the project is still small be the Wiki that hosts it is already a headache to navigate... :>> but I won't say more on this... since it's been up for 3 weeks now I think and I still haven't moved on with the new b2evo website :. )

"Browsers come and go, standards endure"

Citation excellente du WaSP:

"Forgive us for pointing out the obvious: Microsoft is and has always been a for-profit company. Expecting them to continue developing their browsers for free in an IT market as weak as a pink-slip party martini is optimism that would make a Wired editor blush. The demise of the free versions of Internet Explorer simply underscores the need for standards: browsers come and go, standards endure."

L'ensemble du point de vue mérite d'être lue: le WaSP exige de Microsoft qu'ils finissent le boulot après avoir illégalement imposé IE comme navigateur dominant... :>>

PHP unpure...

"[...] as I have said so many times, PHP is not
about purity in CS principles or architecture, it is about solving the
ugly web problem with an admittedly ugly, but extremely functional and
convenient solution. If you are looking for purity you are in the wrong
boat. Get out now before you get hit by a wet cat!"

-Rasmus Lerdorf, creator of PHP

=> makes sense... but just one thing: why is the web problem supposed to be ugly ?
