Hi
If the feed publisher cannot limit the frequency of a client email checking for feed updates, then what does the below paragraph in an article published by Microsoft refer to?

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/change-settings-for-rss-feeds-HA001229947.aspx?CTT=3


"The delivery mechanism for RSS content is known as an RSS Feed. When you subscribe to an RSS Feed, Outlook periodically checks the RSS publisher's server for updated postings. How frequently this check occurs is determined by one of two settings.

RSS publishers can specify the maximum frequency at which a check for new postings should occur. RSS publishers set these limits to help manage the demand on their server. For example, an RSS Feed might have a maximum polling frequency of 60 minutes. Some publishers enforce these limits strictly."

Hi
Is there any way for a RSS publisher to limit the number of times, in the RSS XML itself, feed aggregators or certain email programs like Outlook check for updated RSS content?

Hi
I may try feed for all, but have a question on how it updates content for a feed automatically. I work on a website where the users who update the content on it do so with Dreamweaver in design mode--they do not know HTML.

I would like to create a RSS feed using feed for all for some of the pages they regularly update, however, I am assuming that FFA requires the HTML tags where the content is updated to be specifically marked through ID or other HTML attributes so the RSS feed can find and retrieve the correct content?

Is this correct or is it possible to use FFA with web content updates who do not know HTML?

Paul
