Geo-enabling Wordpress

Made a couple of changes to the RSS 2.0 and Atom feeds for the website to meet geotagging standards. Especially for the RSS feed, which only had a single location for the entire site, not for each entry.

In the wp-atom.php file I modified:
xmlns:geo="http://www.w3.org/2003/01/geo/wgs84_ps#">

and

within the section. For RSS you just need to move the icbm tags down into the section.
