What is RSS? To the topTo top

RSS is short for Really Simple Syndication. It's an XML file that can be read by special feed reading software or a web service you can use from your web browser. Put the address of our RSS feed into your reader, and it will display the latest headlines, each one with a synopsis and link that will take you to the full story. That means you can stay in touch with many different sources of news and information. It's quicker than revisiting a site several times a day to check for updates, as feed readers scan for updates and display them for you.
