Are All RSS Feeds the Same Format?

Are all RSS feeds in the same format?

That is a difficult questions, but in short the answer is no. There are a number of different formats for RSS feeds, which fall into different compatibility groups. The history of RSS is a sordid tale. Basically the most popular branch that is currently widely supported is RSS 2.0.

Another competing format which is similar to RSS is Atom, supporters of Atom feel the format is better suited to syndication, but the format has not been widely adopted. A number of bloggers have recently published statistics related to the feed version supported in feeds, but the numbers only represent a sampling of data.
