New Tool Lets You Play Around with RSS

I've added a new tool to the RSS Advisory Board site that makes it easier to test different Really Simple Syndication element and attribute values in the Feed Validator.

RSS Playground uses a sample RSS document as a starting point, letting you change the values and create a new document that will remain online for 72 hours.

I used the tool this afternoon to see what the Feed Validator does when it encounters a feed containing RFC 2822 date-time values.

Because this tool's being used to support ongoing development of the proposed specification for RSS, the default values are taken from that proposal rather than the current specification.
