E-feed, Yahoo to Blogger, 29-Dec-04 UTC 23:35:46

Changes: De-selected "publish" from blogger settings.

Concept: Content adjustment based on recipient
platform.

Did you notice the Yahoo-image forwarded to blogger?
Notice how it bleeds through.

One solution would be to permit the receiving host [in
this case blogger] adjust the input data in the XML
feed.

This is not to say that feeds would be adjusted,
changed. Rather, for formatting purposes it would be
good if a given host could adjust input data so that
it remained readable.

In this case, an ideal approach would be for blogger
to read the XML-input from Yahoo e-feed, and choose
from various Yahoo-option=images those images that
would "better fit" the blogger index.

Rather than accept an image that would be "too big"
and "make the index shift," an ideal approach would be
to allow blogger to override those variables that
would cause a known problem and still retain
essentially the same effect.

Images could be sized smaller, or alternative images
could be placed into the blog.

Summary

XML feeds include e-feed, or e-mail forwarded from an
e-mail service like Yahoo and automatically posted to
blogger or a blog account.

Content could be adjusted to ensure the input content
did not disrupt the final blog-host.

Concept: Content adjustment based on recipient
platform

Parameters, requirements:

- Reposition, resize images in Yahoo when set to
blogger

- Blogger [or receiving host of the e-feed] would
automatically choose [if the user decided to do so]
among input variables: Image size, layout, wrap
around.

- Allow recipient to reformat content to facilitate
integration without any impact to the other content in
the accepting-location.

- Feeds could include auto-commands for
to
ensure wraparound at the appropriate place, avoid
creating extended text, and ensure that line entries
fit within the constraints of the platform [and do not
bleed over, thereby shifting the index]

Analogy: Web browsers can do the same thing for
webpages: Take any webpage, adjust the content
parameters like language and font style so that they
are automatically adjusted to meet the ~user's~
requirements.
