RDF Site Summary (RSS)

RDF Site Summary (RSS) is a lightweight multipurpose extensible metadata description and syndication format based on RDF and derived from previous RSS versions. Netscape invented and first described RSS 0.9 for the My.Netscape Network (where R=RDF) and later used RSS 0.91 (where R=Rich)
