RSSy Behaviour

Naturally, I just had to create an RSS feed for Scrapie. It doesn’t quite validate due to a few funny characters that probably need escaping, but I need to know a bit more PHP before I attempt fixing that. The time to live is deliberately set to 6 hours, which even then is pretty optimistic since updates are usually monthly at best.
If you add the parameter ?page=foo, where ‘foo’ is replaced by ‘music’, ‘features’, ‘arts’, ‘sport’ or ‘guide’, you can get the feed for that particular category instead of just news articles. I’ll add the autodiscovery code tomorrow, but it’s now 11pm and after working for nearly an hour on getting tbhis to work I need sleep.
