Hi there,
i have been reading about RSS for the last couple of days and i found my self here :)

I used to be a webmaster couple of years ago and i stopped when .net was staring to be popular.

Anyhow, between my frisbee lessons, i am trying to maintain the israeli frisbee portal and i really like to start and use RSS for many stuff like:
weather, pictures, news from the world etc.

I understand how HTML, DHTML, XML, XSL, ASP ETC. work
Can anyone tell me how the hell do i use this RSS on my website??????

As far as i can see it is just an XML file that is being updated all the time, so in order to transform it to a readable HTML, all i need is a XSL file????

Is a RSS reader is a XSL file??

If i want to hook up to an info stream (RSS) and show it on my web site, do i need to install something on the server??

Hope i am making myself clear,

I will toss a frisbee for any good answer :)

Thanks

Dori

In a sense a xsl is a simpliest rss reader. Actually a lot of feedburner feed can be read directly in browser because they include xsl link in the feed. But reading rss this way is probably worse than read the origional web page directly. RSS feed expose data in a format that's easier to process than html pages, so programs can analyze, aggregate, distill the information.

So i can't use RSS directly on a web page?
If for example i want to get some pics from my Flickr account to be displayed on my webpage (which is not on Flickr), and i want the pictures to change when ever i upload new stuff to my Flickr account....

Can i do it??
if so how??

For Flickr - you can create a Flickr badge for your page and do it without needing RSS at all. You choose how many pictures, their size, styling etc, and tell Flickr whether you want to use pictures with a certain tag or a certain group of pictures or all your pictures or just the newest ones, then simply drop the code into your webpage. I think this would be much less problematic than doing it using RSS.
