Excellent! The most important to fix is the content model, which
differs quite drastically between Atom 0.3 and 1.0:

• Don’t use `type="text/html"` (or `application/xhtml+xml`, for
  that matter). In Atom 1.0, this means you want to include a
  full document of the respective MIME Type, the whole shebang,

  Obviously, that’s not what you mean.

• To do the usual thing and include only fragments, either use
  `type="html"`, which is like `mode="escaped"` in Atom 0.3; or
  use `type="xhtml"`, which is like `mode="xml"` in Atom 0.3,
  with the exception that `type="xhtml"` requires you to put the
  content in an XHTML `<div>`.

• Mixing the two does not work. You must not put child elements
  in a text construct with `type="text"` when you’re using any
  `text/*` MIME Type. This is what XML::Atom gets badly wrong.

Once you address that, the resulting feeds should mostly work.
(Not to say you should stop short of 100% validity of course.)

Thanks for your effort. :)
