RSS is Real Simple Syndication
RSS is a simple way of publishing
content (or a news feed) so that others can read it or add it to a web
page. You may have seen this button ( ) on a web page. It
indicates that the information on that page is available via an RSS
"feed." This feed is syndicated, meaning that it can be
published on another web site, or it may be read using an "RSS reader" program.
Although it may LOOK like a link to another web
page, clicking the button will probably not display anything
meaningful. It is meant as a way of presenting the web address
("URL") of the file that contains the syndicated information.
There is a free reader at http://www.rssreader.com/.
