2. Click the "Validate by Direct Input" tab. You see a bigger input box for you to enter the Atom XML directly.

<feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom"> <title>World News</title> <subtitle>This is an example of an RSS feed.</subtitle> <updated>2029-07-31 12:29:29</updated> <link rel="self" href="http://www.world-news.com/"/> <id>http://www.world-news.com/</id> <editor> <name>John Doe</name> </editor> <entry> <title>Breaking News!</title> <link rel="alternate" href="http://www.world-news.com/news/53f933c5395f"/> <id>http://www.world-news.com/news/53f933c5395f</id> <updated>2029-09-15T00:00:00Z</updated> <summary>Here is a breaking news that is still on going...</summary> </entry> </feed>
