What Is RSS?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. It's an easy way for you to keep up with news and information that's important to you, and helps you avoid the conventional methods of browsing or searching for information on websites. Now the content you want can be delivered directly to you without cluttering your inbox with e-mail messages. This content is called a "feed."
RSS is written in the Internet coding language known as XML (eXtensible Markup Language).
How do I start using RSS feeds?
You will need a news reader. This is a small software program that can either stand alone or is embedded in a browser.
You select RSS feeds in the news reader, either by drag and drop, or by cutting and pasting the RSS URL into your news reader.
Some browsers, including Internet Explorer 7, Firefox, Opera and Safari, can automatically pick up RSS feeds. For more details on these, please check their websites.
