 == Overview ==
 
-FeedParser does a great job at parsing RSS feeds but there is additional metadata in the
HTML posts in the form of comments and we'd like to parse this out.
+RSS aggregators do a great job at parsing RSS feeds but there is additional metadata in the
HTML posts in the form of comments and trackbacks and we'd like to parse this out.
 
 Currently all the templating systems use the same general format for div and class names
and its possible to write a parser for them.  
 
-We'd like to push forward an "Open Comments" system mechanism to standardize on XHTML structure
(similar to XOXO) so that RSS parsers like FeedParser can also parse comments in HTML.
+Roughly the structure is:
+
+{{{
+
+<div class="comments">
+
+    <div class="comment-body">
+
+         Hey guys... this is my comment.
+
+    </div>
+
+</div>
+
+}}}

+We'd like to push forward an "Open Comments" system mechanism to standardize on XHTML structure
(similar to XOXO) so that RSS/Atom aggregators can also parse comments and trackbacks from
HTML.
