ck, Thanks for the links. Good to know where the rule of 179 comes from.
Looks like the code just needs to use absolute values. See attached code to fix the problem. Can you check this in for me?

Would like to have a look into the specification draft/document, but didn't find it. regards ck 2010/4/14 Reese, Nathan <nre...@integrity-apps.com>: > I am using the abdera geo extension to geo-tag Atom feeds.
