new service that will display RSS feeds
as HTML. RSS2HTML provides users the option
of running the script on their own system

Chicken and The Egg
I'm involved in a discussion in a forum
regarding RSS and whether RSS is meant to
distribute/syndicate content that is on
a webpage or whether RSS is meant to create
content that can be syndicated on a webpage.

egg and ultimately the goal is the same.
The content is syndicated. The funny things
is how passionate some are about what should
come first... does it really matter?

What is Podcasting?
What is Podcasting
Podcasting is quickly becoming a buzz word
among the techie crowd. So what is podcasting,
anyway? Podcasting is online audio content
that is delivered via an RSS feed. Many
people liken podcasting to radio on demand.
However, in reality, podcasting gives far
more options in terms of content and programming
than radio does. In addition, with Podcasting,
listeners can determine the time and the
place, meaning they decide what programming
they want to receive and when they want
to listen to it.

freely available by NotePage, Inc. The rss2html.php
script allows webmsters to display RSS feeds

RSS or Really Simple Syndication, as it
is commonly known, is a technology that

can customize the format and look of the
web page created from the feed. The RSS
feed's contents can easily be integrated
into an existing website's theme. The rss2html.php
script parses the RSS file, extracts the
pertinent information, formats it, and serves
it up as regular HTML.
The rss2html.php script runs on any webserver
that can run PHP scripts, and it support
feeds in the RSS 2.0, .93, .92, .91, or
.90 format. Additional details and a download
