Really Simple Syndication (RSS) is an XML-based format for content distribution. Sullivan & Worcester LLP offers RSS feeds for our various practice areas, which include a brief overview of the latest updates in a given practice area with links to the full article on our Web site.
To start using RSS, you need a special news reader or aggregator that displays RSS content feeds from Web sites you select. There are many different news readers available, many of which are free of charge. Most are available as desktop software that you download and install on your computer. Several Web-based news readers are available as well. For example, you can download a free RSS reader through a site such as download.com. Web browsers such as Firefox and Opera have built-in RSS readers, as do some mail programs, including Thunderbird.
Once you have set up your news reader, you simply subscribe to the RSS content feeds you want.
