I am always willing to admit when I’m wrong.  I was just railing on a site for not providing <author> information in their RSS feed.  I’m used to pulling the author name using the <author> tag.

I come to learn that <author> tag is just meant for the post author’s email address.  <dc:creator> is truly meant for the name of the author.

I didn’t know this.  I had to Google it and I came up with this post explaining RSS: <author> vs: <dc:creator>.
