Connected with a post below, the RSS is extended from XML language, so in this post I am going to write a brief description about the RSS.
First of all, RSS is an abbreviation for Rich Site Summary, Really Simple Syndication, RDF Site Summary, or a variation on any of these names. It is an XML document that facilitates content syndication. The term “RSS” is still sometimes used to refer to web feeds in general, including web feeds with a format different from RSS.
The Blogspace description of using web feeds in an aggregator is headlined “RSS info” and “RSS readers” even though its first sentence makes clear the inclusion of the Atom format: “RSS and Atom files provide news updates from a website in a simple form for your computer. “
Some Internet Explorers offer the possibility of connect RSS in order to allow the user to know about the updatings of the web. Windows Vista, offers a noticeboard to show the updated webpages in the desktop.
