What is RSS ?
RSS is fast becoming the new standard
for distributing news and information
via the Internet. In the coming
years, you can forget about email
newsletters. Everyone will be reading
their news via an RSS news aggregator
such as CastleNews.
RSS is a simple, lightweight XML
format designed for sharing headlines
and other Web content. For publishers
(web sites etc), RSS is a great way
to present structured information
such as news, headlines, updates.
For end users, RSS is a simple and
convenient, yet very powerful tool
for getting content where, when and
how they want it.
RSS is great for publishers because
it allows them to publish the latest
headlines related to their site.
End users, or other web sites can
make use of the RSS feed to view
or display the headlines from the
publishers site. When another web
site publishes the contents of an
RSS feed, this process is called
syndication. Syndication of a publishers
RSS feed can greatly increase the
number of visitors who see the headlines
and subsequently visit the publishers
RSS is great for users because it
is a simple method of obtaining the
latest news that is of interest.
With a news aggregator such as CastleNews,
the user can organize and track all
of their RSS feeds in one convenient
