First we declare it as an XML file (RSS is an XML standard), then RSS tag and version (at this time, 2.0 is latest). Then we start with channel which contains some general description of feed and provider like title, link, description, and finally actual items. Each item contains a title, a brief description, a publication date and a link to rest of item. To see all information you can display, check out official RSS 2.0 specification.
There are several ways to read an RSS feed: Using your browser or even notepad --since it's just an XML file (formatted flat text). Using a standalone desktop aggregator --such as FeedDemon, SharpReader, RssReader, and others. Using your e-mail client --NewsGator Email Edition plugs into Outlook Express, Eudora, Entourage, Apple Mail, or other POP3 e-mail clients and lets you receive RSS feeds right in your e-mail window. The same company's Outlook Edition integrates RSS with Microsoft Outlook. And Mozilla's Thunderbird e-mail client comes with RSS-reading capabilities built in. Using your mobile device --using a service such as FeedBeep, NewsGator Mobile Edition, Yahoo Mobile, or Elfinland.
To create an RSS for your own site, there is option to create it by hand, or using a software like FeedForAll, or an online service like RSS creator.
Finally, to search for established RSS feeds you can use our very own RSS search engine, and to quickly submit your RSS feed to several directories, you can use our RSS submit tool.
