& I rest my case.

Via Tim Bray, James Holderness describes why RSS is broken beyond the point of fixing.
Clearly if you want to support Firefox or Internet Explorer you’ve got no choice but to use the single encoding option. For certain strings, though, that would mean losing support for at least twenty other aggregators. No matter what you do, you can’t win.

I agree with Tim that this is a decisive argument for Atom. I rest my case.
