What is RSS?


RSS (Really Simple Syndication) is an XML-based format for delivering a summary of Web site content that frequently changes.  RSS feeds include links back to the site for the full article, and they update automatically.  Any site that consistently updates items can use the RSS format to distribute new information.


How Can You Use RSS?


To read an RSS feed you will need an RSS reader or aggregator that will automatically download and display RSS feeds for you.  There are a variety of software solutions to read RSS feeds on your computer.  Additionally, the newest versions of both Microsoft Internet Explorer and Mozilla FireFox Web browsers have built-in RSS readers. 


To subscribe to Stewart.com’s RSS feed, click the RSS button and copy the link in your browser’s address bar from the resulting page.  You will need to paste this link into your RSS reader software.  If you are using Internet Explorer 7.0 or Mozilla FireFox 2.0 click the RSS button and the news headlines will display in your browser.  Once your browser has displayed the headlines, it will show you an easy way to subscribe to the feed so it is always a click away. 


There are many RSS readers to choose from.  Please select the RSS reader you prefer.  Here are some choices:
