The symbol denotes a link to the RSS data source of a website. The abbreviation RSS stands for “Rich Site Summary”. RSS is an XML Standard for the provision of news or text information for use on other computers or websites (Content Syndication). The format has its beginnings in a development by Netscape at the end of the 1990’s (RSS 0.9) and has already been improved many times, the latest version being RSS 2.0. In addition to this, various expansions are in existence. The most important is Dublin Core , which is, for example, used for indicating a language or to give copyright information.
Unlike websites which are called up via browser, in an RSS file information is reduced to content and logically tagged to enable it to be read not only by people but also to be machine interpreted. At present the technology is experiencing rapid expansion in America and will probably soon be more intensively used in Europe. This also must be seen in the context of the increasing insecurity about subscribing to newsletters caused by viruses and spam on consumer websites.
News feeds can very easily be integrated into other websites – always with the agreement of the provider. This makes it possible to adapt the display completely to the website. Depending on which technology or CMS is used, the cost of this varies. In contentXXL this can be achieved without any programming via the XML module
