Perhaps a page like http://philip.html5.org/data.html - people might
want to subscribe in their feed reader to see all the exciting
updates, and the markup is all hand-written. It's not at all like a
blog, but maybe it's data that could be usefully represented with
Atom.

Currently the markup looks like:

  <ol>
    <li><a href="http://philip.html5.org/data/abbr-acronym.txt"><code>abbr</code>,
<code>acronym</code> titles and contents.</a> <!-- 2008-02-03 -->
    <li><a href="http://philip.html5.org/data/spaced-uris.txt">URIs
containing spaces.</a> <!-- 2008-02-02 -->
    ...
  </ol>

If I understand the spec correctly, I would have to write something like:

  <ol>
    <li>
      <article pubdate="2008-02-03T00:00:00Z">
        <h1><a href="http://philip.html5.org/data/abbr-acronym.txt"
rel="bookmark"><code>abbr</code>, <code>acronym</code> titles and
contents.</a></h1>
      </article>
    <li>
      <article pubdate="2008-02-02T00:00:00Z">
        <h1><a href="http://philip.html5.org/data/spaced-uris.txt"
rel="bookmark">URIs containing spaces.</a></h1>
      </article>
    ...
  </ol>

and then it would hopefully work.
