It's all spinning wheels and self-doubt until the first pot of coffee.

OPML to XOXO to Technorati Favorites

The import page for Technorati Favorites mentions that it supports XOXO as a format along with OPML. Cool! I'm a known XOXO lover. So, I tried importing my OPML "amusements" reading list as an XOXO outline. I used the XSL transformation I mentioned a few weeks ago, tweaked to follow some ideas for subscription markup in XOXO. Well, it looks like it worked!

So, what's the moral of the story? I can use the OPML Editor and still use XOXO, thanks to my stylish glasses. Although, it would be nice to have a profile, spec, or guideline as to what XOXO is expected by Technorati Favorites - XOXO is a pretty wide open microformat. I mainly made an educated guess, followed a wiki brainstorming example, and crossed my fingers as I hit submit.
