    What is XML and how do I use it?

    There is a red radio button at the top left of the Forum page, labelled XML. What is XML and how is it used?

    Re: What is XML and how do I use it?

    It's a link for RSS Readers (news feeds).

    If you use MyYahoo or an RSS Reader like Pluck for IE (they might have a Firefox version too) or the Firefox Addon or one of the stand-alone RSS news readers (Google free RSS readers), then you can add the forum feed to the reader by right clicking on the XML button and selecting "Copy URL".

    For the average forum member, it won't mean a thing. It just delivers up an XML page consistent with the RSS ("Really Simple Syndication") format.

    In following up with some friends who know about these things, if anyone is interested in learning more about RSS, check out this discussion:
