RFC-822 Compatible Dates In RSS Feeds

Free Resource
If you're building RSS 2.0 files with .rxml files on your Rails app, this sort of line will get you a valid date/time:

xml.pubDate(p.updated_at.strftime("%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S %z"))

If you're just using strftime someplace else, perhaps in PHP, try:

strftime("%a, %d %b %Y %H:%M:%S %z")
