I think I should clarify that we are not responsible for PRISM - that would
be the PRISM WG of IDEAlliance, see

        http://prismstandard.org/

for the current PRISM spec 1.2.

We just defined an RSS 1.0 module for the basic PRISM vocabulary. (OK, we
did lobby for, and were granted a couple extra elements along the way -
prism:endingPage and prism:eIssn.)

For finer grained control of author names other vocabularies could be added
to the RSS feed - e.g. FOAF, or maybe vCard - though neither of these seems
to be quite the answer as they are both experimental and they still do not
seem to have the required degree of granularity. I do not thopugh that the
PRISM folks are interested in achieving that degree of markup.

Cheers,

Tony
