xpath2rss is an XPath to RSS scraper. XPath makes a better HTML scraper than regex (the typical solution) because it understands the structure of the document, rather than just treating it as a big string. As a result, xpath2rss is a more reliable scraper, and much easier to use, once you get the hang of XPath.

Release Notes: This release changes xml.sax.writer to the spiffier xml.sax.saxutils.XMLGenerator, and fixes more encoding errors.
