Creating RSS files for your Web site
Now that we fully understand all aspects of the RSS file format and have our own version ready for all to see, we need to weave ourselves into the World Wide Web of News Syndication. The next installment will cover submitting our channel to aggregator's listing and enhancing our own Web site with news content from other interesting sites.
The explanations of RSS elements in this document are derived from
UserLand.Com's RSS definition.
