Hi!
I'm trying to validate my RSS feed. Here's what I got from http://feedvalidator.org/
What's this 'RFC-822' Format? Other messages? Any thoughts?
Thanks!

Can I use just <pubDate>02 Oct 2002</pubDate> ?
And where I can find a detailed description of this <pubDate> and other requirements?
Thanks!

Try it and see if validates.  I think the timezone (i.e., EST) is necessary, though.

For a good tutorial, I recommend w3schools:
