What is RSS?

RSS (Rich Site Summary, or Really Simple Syndication, or RDF Site Summary) is an XML-based format for structuring and describing meta-data such as headlines or a summary of a website.
RSS is used to release and provide updated information on a website to users. Software such as an RSS reader allows users to find the latest information on a website without having to visit that site directly.

How to Use RSS

To display updated information of each piece of content that supports RSS, you will need software such as an RSS reader.
Some pieces of software allow you to register a webpage just by clicking an RSS icon, while some types of web browser software (such as Internet Explorer 7) are equipped with an RSS reader function.
The display (registration) method of RSS information varies depending on the software. Please check the operating instructions for the software you are using.
To take advantage of our RSS-supported contents, register them in these RSS readers.
