What is RSS?
What is RSS?

RSS is a Web content syndication format.

The name is an acronym for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication. RSS is a dialect of XML. All RSS files must conform to the XML 1.0 specification, as published on the World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) website.

At the top level, a RSS document is a <rss> element, with a mandatory attribute called version, that specifies the version of RSS that the document conforms to. The ITU Strategy and Policy Unit uses RSS Version 2.0 as generated by Radio Userland. Subordinate to the <rss> element is a single <channel> element, which contains information about the channel (metadata) and its contents.
