Here's an example:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<feed xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom" xml:base="http:// 
example.com/a01-simple.html">

type="text/html"/>
   <title>a01 simple</title>
   <entry>
     <title>Simplest possible entry</title>
     <id>http://example.com/a01-simple.html#foo</id>
