Subject Re: atom categories
Date Tue, 25 Sep 2007 15:29:57 GMT
With atom:entry, atom:feed and atom:source, categories are listed
without a container element.  The app:categories element is part of the
Atompub spec and is used to tell atompub clients what atom:category
elements can be used in an entry.
