What Is RSS?
Use the orange RSS
or XML buttons (they're everywhere
to get the latest Web pages from Photos of Boats, newsfeeds from BBC
or CNN, as well as just about anything else, including news and
information about your hobbies, business interests and on forthcoming
movies, DVD releases, your favorite musician's tour updates, etc.
Once you get started, it's like having your favorite parts of the Web
come to you. No need to go out and check for updates all the time.
What RSS means to you is that when you subscribe to a site that has an
RSS feed, you can keep up-to-date without having to check the site
every day or week.
