What is RSS?
RSS is an acronym for Rich Site Summary, or Real Simple Syndication. It is a file format that is gaining popularity for distributing basic information about recent news items. RSS files are written in a language called XML.
What is in an RSS Feed?
Usually, a RSS Feed contains news headlines, a summary of a news item, and a link to more information.
When I click on an RSS Feed link I see a bunch of code--not the news.
RSS Feeds are not "human readable"--they are designed to be processed and displayed to you by a RSS Reader program.
How to view RSS Feeds?
Users with Outlook 2007 can have RSS Feeds downloaded to their inbox while other user can use an RSS aggregator program.
1. Copy the URL/shortcut that corresponds to the topic that interests you.
2. Paste the URL into your reader.
RSS Aggregator programs are also called RSS Readers and they download and display RSS feeds for you. A number of free and commercial News Aggregators are available for download. For example, if you subscribe to the DDOE News Feed with your aggregator or Outlook 2007, it will check our news feed regularly and pull down new news if something new has been posted since the aggregator last visited our site.
