What is headline syndication?
Commonly web sites that publish new content on a regular basis provide a list of news headline style links to their latest content. In addition to displaying these headlines on their own web sites, it is very common for publishers to make them available for syndication using RSS (a dialect of XML) or "Really Simple Syndication", so that other web sites or newsreaders can also include their headlines. Headline syndication does not deal with the full text of articles.
How do I get content delivered to my desktop?
