6/20/99: A collection of scripts, in Frontier, Java, AppleScript, Perl, Cold
Fusion, PHP and Tcl, that produce a ScriptingNews 2.0b1 format syndication
file from a plain text format that's easy for writers to work with.$14

RSS and ScriptingNews format are evolving to a single format, so as we go
forward, we'll update this page with more scripts in many popular languages
that can be used to manage XML-based content from plain text. This is key as
syndication goes forward, you should work in a "meta-meta" format, because
there will always be new "standards". That's the way this stuff works!
