Is the RSS Validator acting funky?

As a followup to yesterday's entry, a look at the source code of the RSS Validator reveals the elements it considers to be duplicates:

Item elements:

  • author and dc:creator
  • category and dc:subject
  • pubDate and dc:date

Channel elements:

  • copyright and dc:copyright
  • creativeCommons:license and cc:license
  • generator and admin:generatorAgent
  • language and dc:language
  • lastBuildDate and dc:termsModified
  • managingEditor and dc:creator
  • pubDate and dc:date
  • webmaster and dc:publisher

I haven't tested each one, but it appears the validator rejects any RSS file that duplicates these elements, suggesting that the problem be fixed by deleting the core element (or in one case, the creativecommons element).

There's more discussion of this on SSF-DEV.
