RSS ("RDF Site Summary"," Rich Site Summary " ) is a document specification that gives users the power to collect and organize Web-based news and information in a more efficient manner. The RDF Site Summary is actually an extension to the RDF language. Quoting the official RSS v1.0 specification: ‘RDF Site Summary (RSS) is a lightweight multipurpose extensible metadata description and syndication format. RSS is an XML application, conforms to the W3C's RDF specification and is extensible via XML-namespace and/or RDF based modularization.'
