[DONE] RSS: Tags should be specified as category elements
talklittle 23 Aug, 2016

Thanks for supporting RSS! Suggestion: Instead of putting the tags directly in the RSS item description, you can use separate <category> elements. See https://validator.w3.org/feed/docs/rss2.html#ltcategorygtSubelementOfLtitemgt

For example, instead of:

<description><![CDATA[Tags:Steam,FPS,Coming Soon,Action<br /> ... </description>

You can do:

<category domain="">Steam</category>
<category domain="">FPS</category>
<category domain="">Coming Soon</category>
<category domain="">Action</category>

I forgot to mention why this is a good idea. It's a standard way of tagging in RSS, so RSS reader software can parse, display, and filter tags straightforwardly. Thanks for considering.
