What is RSS?
RSS, or Really Simple Syndication, is a standard for subscribing to Internet content. A site can distribute updated content via an RSS "feed" to a kind of program called an "aggregator," instead of requiring readers to check the page itself for updates. Because the feed's content is extracted and tagged with meta-information, it can be collected and sorted according to the reader's wishes. Many sites use RSS feeds as a way to send out information or notify subscribers about updates.
How do I access RSS?
In order to subscribe to an RSS feed, you'll need an aggregator, such as Sharpreader. Copy the address given for the RSS feed to your RSS aggregator (in many programs, you can simply drag and drop the URL from your browser onto the aggregator window). You may need to click a "Subscribe" button to complete the process. If you use Firefox or Internet Explorer 7, these browsers even have RSS capability built-in (you may check the following links for help with Firefox and Internet Explorer 7).
