Since my previous post I found another simple-to-install PHP RSS feed parser which works very well, and very easy to add the feed to a normal PHP web page too - if anyone's interested.

You're doing the right thing with using the server side parsing and it is generally the prefered and recommended method to include RSS output on a webpage.
Why not share what' you've found

Yes Patrick, do share.
I would like to find a primer for RSS. I can think of several uses for some of my stuff.

I'd be glad to, but is it allowed here? It's a commercial site with a free download.

|In particular, what are the main technical issues a webmaster should be concerned about when adding a feed to a normal page? |
One thing you should be doing is cacheing the feed so that you are only hitting the provider's server on a periodic basis. Hopefully the parser you found provides this functionality? The cache refresh rate will of course depend upon how often the feed is updated.
