Abstract

Really Simply Syndication or Rich Site Summary (RSS) now becomes common way of summarizing content of an information website.- This is based on Resource Description Format ( RDF), which is an extensible markup language(XML) standard for analyzing information. Many an organization such as CNN, YAHOO generates summary of the content of her website in this xml format called rss feed, which can be read by news aggregators such as rss reader and feed reader or processed by some programming languages. News aggregators make it poss.ible to get updated information. from various websites simultaneously without visiting the websites. Today in Nigeria .. there are over twenty national dailies. While few are online. yet it is mandatory to visit these websites individually to get latest information. To improve on the usability of these sites, it becomes necessary to generate rss feeds for those who prefer getting information from these websites using news aggregators.
