What is RSS?
RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication" and allows you to stay up-to-date with news feeds from our web site by delivering headlines as they are updated right to your news reader. You will be able to quickly read the headlines and then visit our site for the full story. RSS feeds automatically deliver direct links to our most updated content on demand to your desktop.
Do I Use RSS?
In general, the first thing you need is a news reader. This is a piece of software that checks RSS feeds and lets you read any new articles that have been added to them. There are many different versions, some of which are accessed using a browser, and some of which are downloadable applications. Browser-based news readers let you catch up with your RSS feeds from any computer, whereas downloadable applications let you store them on your main computer, in the same way that you either download your e-mail using Outlook, or keep it on a web-based.
Once you have chosen a news reader, all you have to do is to decide what content you want to receive in your news reader, by finding and copying relevant RSS feed links to your news reader.
There are many news readers available, most are free. For web based news readers, try My Yahoo. The Mozilla FireFox browser has a built-in news reader also.
