12.1. Designing a simple RSS reader application
RSS is an XML format commonly used by blogs as a way to syndicate their content. While not as popular as it once was, a website using RSS can share its content with other websites and tools. An example of a website using RSS to syndicate content is CNN. If you open your browser to www.cnn.com/services/rss/, you’ll see a complete list of RSS feeds covering different parts of their content (figure 12.1).
