Question about RSS enclosures

Michael Heileman: It appears that RSS enclosures should not contain an FTP link.

Randy: According to the spec, url must be http, it cannot be ftp, it cannot be https, nor any other URI scheme. That doesn't prohibit podcatchers from accepting other URI schemes, but for interop, stick with http.

Actually, that was me Scott Kingery not Michael. I realize now my blog template caused the confusion so I've fixed it.

Anyway, thanks for the info!
Additionally, although you linked to my site, Ice Rocket doesn't indicate that you did and neither does technorati. Odd?

I should rephrase that. Technorati does now show the link.
