FreeThePostcode & OSM not outputting valid W3C geo tags

The recent feed from FreeThePostcode is outputting 'lat' and 'lon' tags but they should be 'lat' and 'long'. I suspect many parsers will look for both, but the W3C Basic spec says it should be the latter.

Should we be looking to use GeoRSS Simple anyway?

Cheers. I only noticed this, by the way, because SimplePie? wasn't aggregating the FTP feeds properly - it only looks for lat and long at the moment.

  • Summary changed from FreeThePostcode is not outputting valid W3C geo tags to FreeThePostcode & OSM not outputting valid W3C geo tags

Just noticed that this is the same with the nodes.rss feed from OpenStreetMap
