RSS FAQ

What is RSS?

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication." An RSS file contains headlines, summaries and links that are formatted in XML (eXtensible Markup Language) so that they may be read by a program.

How do I use RSS?

The most common use of RSS is viewing news with an RSS reader, also known as a news aggregator. There are three types of news aggregators: stand-alone programs, e-mail-integrated applications, and Web-based aggregators.

How is RSS different than an e-mail newsletter?

E-mail newsletters are usually delivered at a time chosen by the publisher. RSS gives you more control by always being available and staying updated. Another advantage RSS has over e-mail is that you don't have to supply an e-mail address to get the headlines.

How is RSS different than a Web site?

RSS is usually a slimmed-down version of a Web site. Images and other supplementary information are not included in an RSS feed.

How does customization work in the table above?

The signup buttons in the grid can direct you with one click to Google and Yahoo. They are the most common sites for pages of customized content. If you have an account with one of them, click on their logo in the row that corresponds to your desired feed. They should recognize you or prompt you to sign in. If you've never done this before, go ahead and pick one of them. They'll walk you through the signup process when you get there.

What if I don't want to use one of those companies?

That's fine, too. We have quick links to them because of their popularity, but if you want to use our content in a different way, we've got you covered. Just click on the button that says XML and copy what's in the web browser address bar.
