Doc processing

I’m working on a new feature for NetNewsWire this morning—Doc processing.

Doc in this case doesn’t stand for document: it stands for Doc Searls. If you use an RSS reader to read his site you may have noticed that his RSS feed is always just one big item with a bunch of HTML. So the software will handle it as a special case: it will break it up into individual items.

In other RSS news, I noticed that MacRumors now has an RSS feed.

Update 11:15 a.m.: Doc processing now works. Here’s a screen shot.
