I am quite sure the question title is not helpful, thus, here is the long version:
Is there any "common practice" method to extend feeds to give readers an option to load more entries?
What I want to achive is providing search results in a simple-to-browse way. I thought, feeds would be nice. However, neither RSS nor Atom provide a standard mechanism to get "more entries".
I know "CoolIris" uses
<atom:link rel="previous" ... /> and
<atom:link rel="next" ... /> in its media feeds to achive this (reference), but using "previous" and "next" is not in the Atom specification. So this is also a very non-standard way.
Since I will create the feeds myself, I could use any method. However, is there any reader out there which will unterstand something like this?
