Converting from OPML

The Outline Processor Markup Language (OPML) is an XML format for outlines, that is mostly used to exchange lists of web feeds between web feed aggregrators. It uses the RFC 822 date format, which is considered obsolete. Fans of the RFC 822 date think it’s a good idea to have only two digits to represent a year. But I have no idea if they were born 1900 or 2000 or if they’ve ever heard of the much cooler RFC 3339. Or how they would call it: RF 39. Anyway. You’re here because you want to use this format. Or you have to. My condolences.

The files end with .xml by default.

Converting to Rich Text Format

The Rich Text Format originated in the Microsoft Word Development team in 1987. It was developed for cross-platform document interchange with other products from Microsoft. You could say it’s the light version of Word files. Still proprietary, but less feature rich. It has more features than a plain text file, that’s why it has rich in the name though. There hasn’t been a change since 2008 (Version 1.9.1). It’s not dead though. Every once in a while there comes a small file with a .rtf extension. When you see such a file, you know it’s a Rich Text Format file. One cool thing: RTF files are human-readable. It’s not some binary file, it’s a plain text based markup format.
