RSS feed not showing item time

The time displays on RSS feed items is not correct, it is not  the time when the item was created and saved in database. Can you please tell me that how I can correct it. Please see the code bellow. You can see the result here: http://khatesabz.info/rss.php

<?php
echo '<?xml version="1.0" ?>';
echo '<rss version="2.0">';
echo '<channel>';
echo '<title>RSS Feed</title>';
echo '<link>http://--.info</link>';
echo '<language>fa</language>';
echo '<description>" &#1582;&#1591; &#1587;&#1576;&#1586; "</description>';

require_once 'kamen/serverdata.php';
$conn = mysql_connect("$dbHost","$dbUser","$dbPass");
mysql_query('SET NAMES utf8');
$db = mysql_select_db("$dbName");
mysql_query("SET CHARACTER_SET_RESULTS=NULL");
$sql = "SELECT * FROM lastnews ORDER BY id DESC LIMIT 15";
$result = mysql_query($sql);
while($row=mysql_fetch_assoc($result)){
echo '<item>';
echo '<pubDate>'.$row['date'].'</pubDate>';
echo '<pubTime>'.$row['time'].'</pubTime>';
echo '<title>'.$row['title'].'</title>';
echo '<link>'.$row['code'].'</link>';
echo '<description>'.$row['description'].'</description>';
echo '</item>';
}
echo '</channel>';
echo '</rss>';
?>

RSS is a specialized subset of XML.  You can find more information on RSS here.  A quick search of that page will show you that there is no "pubTime" tag defined.
http://cyber.law.harvard.edu/rss/rss.html

The correct format for the RSS pubDate is RFC822 or RFC 2822.  In PHP this is date('r') format.  I think your problem arises from providing the wrong format for pubDate.  Check these links.
http://asg.web.cmu.edu/rfc/rfc822.html
http://php.net/manual/en/function.date.php

I would also like to suggest that the use of MySQL reserved words like "date" and "time" for column names is a recipe for confusion.  Here is an article that shows a little more about how to handle date and time in PHP and MySQL.  See if it helps you sort out the information that you have to store in the data base and reproduce in the XML of the RSS feed.

An object-oriented version of the article is available here.
