item.Links.Add(new SyndicationLink(new Uri("http://Contoso"), "alternate", "MyItemLink", "text/html", 100));
item.PublishDate = new DateTime(1968, 2, 23);
item.LastUpdatedTime = DateTime.Today;
item.SourceFeed = new SyndicationFeed();
item.Summary = new TextSyndicationContent("This the item summary");

XmlWriter rssWriter = XmlWriter.Create("RssItem.xml");
Rss20ItemFormatter<MySyndicationItem> formatter = new Rss20ItemFormatter<MySyndicationItem>(item);
