RSS is an XML based document format for syndicating news and other timely news-like information. It provides headlines, URLs to the source document and brief description information in an easy to understand and use format. RSS based "News Readers" and "News Aggregators" allow the display of RSS headlines on workstation desktops. Software libraries exist to read the RSS format and present RSS headlines on webpages and other online applications.
