What is RSS?

How can I use RSS?
RSS pages are a special kind of web page designed to be read by computers rather than people. In order to use them easily you will need a program installed on your computer called an RSS Reader or Aggregator. Various versions are available depending upon your computer's operating system. Some browsers can display RSS feeds too. To display the RSS feed you want just drag or copy and paste the URL (web address) into your reader. After that you just need to check your Reader to see what's new. Clicking on a link in the feed will take you directly to the correct webpage on our site.

Autodiscovery is a technique to allow RSS feeds to be found by programs rather than humans. Currently our CMS does not support this but we will be providing it in 2010.
