OK, just keep things moving, how does this strike everybody? Links are inline tags, and there's a bunch of extra metadata to grow into. Like it? Hate it?

    <link url="foo">Here's</link> the title
    And here's some more text with a link in it.
  The Times<;/sourceurl>

text - mandatory. contains all non-headline text. 1 per item.
title - optional. denotes headline status. 1 per item. Precedes text.

I'd say the following could be attributes of , but there are so many...
source - name of the publishing entity, if not local. Optional.
sourceurl - url of the publishing entity, if not local.
category - predefined category, if available.
categoryurl - where to get a definition of the category
pubdate - date published. optional.
expdate - date the item becomes invalid; optional.

Oh, and how about this; no html in ?
