For some time now, I have been producing an RSS (Really Simple Syndication) version of this blog. RSS has been a boon for personal publishing; however, it still has numerous shortcomings. In order to address some of these, I give you ToSS: TeX-oriented Simple Syndication.
Here are some of the advantages that ToSS offers over existing syndication formats:
- Finally, a truly portable syndication format. Using
pdflatex, generate a PDF version of your site (screenshot) that may be viewed across all platforms, or even printed so that it may be read anywhere.
- No more encoding issues. Uses the simple, unambiguous LaTeX syntax for "foreign" characters.
- Powerful equation support for the Maths/Science/Engineering communities.
- There's no specification, so nobody can argue over who invented it.
I recommend that you check out my ToSS feed, for more details.
