Suppose I asked you to create a machine-readable blogroll.

For each blog you had to include a link to either:

  1. its HTML home page with the assumption that the home page had a element pointing to the feed, or

  2. a pointer to the feed, with the assumption that the top-level element points to the HTML home page.

You could include other data for each site, but those are minimal.

Think quickly – what tool would you use to create this data file/document?

If this tool isn’t ideal, what would be?

PS: Obviously you could do it with an outliner, I’m interested in hearing from people who don’t think in terms of outliners.

PPS: I also asked this question on GitHub, with a place to comment.
