What is RSS? :.

RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication" and it is a dialect of XML that was created in the late 1990s to allow lists of information, known as "feeds", to be published by content producers and subscribed to by readers. The availability of an RSS news feed is usually indicated by the presence of one of the following buttons:
XML - often denotes RSS Feed information. or RSS - often denotes RSS Feed information..

RSS is commonly used to pull in content for news-like sites, including major news sites like Wired, news-oriented community sites like Slashdot, and personal weblogs. But it's not just for news. Pretty much anything that can be broken down into discrete items can be syndicated via RSS: the "recent changes" page of a wiki, a changelog of CVS checkins, even the revision history of a book. Once information about each item is in RSS format, an RSS-aware program can check the feed for changes and react to the changes in an appropriate way.

RSS-aware programs called news aggregators are popular in the weblogging community. Many weblogs make content available in RSS. A news aggregator can help you keep up with all your favorite weblogs by checking their RSS feeds and displaying new items from each of them.

There are several version of RSS out there - the history is pretty interesting - but what seems to be the more widely adopted version (2.0) was created by the folks at UserLand
