Jim Weaver: Adding feeds to SpeedReaderFX that don't *quite* comply with the RSS/Atom formats

In my blog feeds today, I found Java Champion Jim Weaver's interesting post Adding feeds to SpeedReaderFX that don't *quite* comply with the RSS/Atom formats:

When adding more feeds to the SpeedReaderFX application's Criteria dialog, I found that some of them don't *quite* comply with RSS/Atom formats.  For example, I thought it'd be cool to have RSS feeds from Engadget and Gizmodo (what self-respecting geek wouldn't want those feeds?)  I also wanted to have a daily dose of Dilbert delivered, but in these three cases the JavaFX RSS API reported that the dates for the feed items were just prior to the OS epoch.
