    the current RSS contains the following content, for example:

    ===========================================================
    Bloomberg.com: Canada

    Tags: no_tag

    Posted by: isaacmao

    Highlights and Sticky Notes:

    China's first defeat at the World
    Trade Organization may trigger more complaints against the nation,
    which already faces another four cases challenging its commercial
    practices, trade lawyers say.

    =========================================================

    Can you move "tags" and "Posted by" parts to the bottom of the content instead of putting them ahead of the description part, it's very unusable when subscribing with some briefing-based RSS readers like Anothr.com, or Twitterfeeds.com to feed into Twitter, etc. The limitation of the abstraction length could leave no space for description.

    Thanks.

    Format: sometimes it could work for user A, but not user B. If we change it for user B, then user A may not be thrilled. We will take a look again of other services RSS format to evaluate.

    Any input from other users?

    1. for Diigo, the most important theme is the "highlighted" part, then it should be the first presented content
    2. for many content, people wont' set tags, the "tag" part will be mostly left blank, it's quite space wasting
    3. the "posted by xxx" is almost unnecessary because of the subscriber definitely understand the context of whose RSS, anyway, it's can be coded as ...

    you can refer to the most of the RSS feed from other application

    The 3. item didn't display properly in this forum because I posted some XML there.
    for any RSS format, both tag, author information are coded as an XML element instead of putting all stuff into "Description" part. Try to take a look at the RSS 2.0 spec.

    It's not User A, or User B problem, it's a defacto.

    I think it is a simple and clear improvement. Let's do it.
