 RSS and Feed Readers

"RSS is one component of the Semantic Web - and the only element currently enjoying widespread use. RSS is not the only format available for providing news feeds, and the name RSS even describes two different formats. I say name rather than acronym because "RSS" has been variously used to mean "RDF Site Summary", "Rich Site Summary", and "Really Simple Syndication", and because of this, it is best regarded as a name, to avoid confusion."
