Why won't this RSS feed timestamp validate? (RFC-822)

    My first foray into RSS and I'm getting a headache.

    I've validated the feed and the only glitch comes up with the timestamp:

    <pubDate>Thu, 20 July 10:15:58 GMT</pubDate>

    I can't see anything wrong though as to me it just looks like the example ones.

    However, when I validate it, it's coming up as invalid "must be RFC-822 format"

    Can anyone spot what's wrong?

    Cheers in advance..

    Try Thu, 20 Jul 2006 10:15:58 GMT

    Year should be present, and months are chopped down to three letters. The weekday can be omitted.

    I knew I'd be missing something like that :rolleyes: ;)

    I tried it and it still didn't work fully, but then realised it needs to be just jul and not July.

    Now it's validated. Thanks iMeowbot for the second time today. :D
