Will Google Reader, for example, only render title and description? What about the dc:creator and such tags?

I am asking since our RSS feed has this information already, but I have not found a reader that is actually display such tags automatically. I am not looking for readers that can be configured to show any tag by editing a style sheet or similar, but readers that natively support dc and similar tags.

What I need to know is very hard to find on the net due to too much information hiding what I need to know.

BazQux Reader handles these tags. It also handles media:* tags and some itunes: tags. For example it can display audio enclosure duration or video enclosure thumbnail (and video player is embedded too, no need to open attachments in other tabs).

PS: I'm affiliated since I am developer of this reader.

Sorry @AlEverett, forgot to mention that I'm affiliated on some answers. Should be fixed now. – vshabanov Mar 12 '13 at 15:39
That's fine, but you're still only answering questions to promote your app. That is frowned upon. – Al E. Mar 12 '13 at 16:51

Take a look at http://www.feedreader.com/features.php

You can customise any article page by adding rules to the stylesheet.

Feed contains information


Feedreader publishes this information in article page, too. It's converted into


So it's only matter of adding special rules to stylesheet to display this information in article page.

Thanks - that sounds interesting. However that does not really answer my question. I have rephrased it a little to make the distinction between something you can make a reader do and something it already does – mplungjan Jan 15 '11 at 20:06

NewsBlur renders such tags automatically. Good reader, too.
