Usually activex are not necessary to code an XML/RSS feed.
How would you code it? By hand or using a server side language?

This is a good starting point.

I don't have a lot of technology available to do it with server side, and also it needs to be reused by other people as well within the company.

I guess I'm stuck with Javascript or something like that. What can you suggest?

Thank you in advance.

What do you mean by 'code' an RSS feed? An RSS feed is just a file with a bit of XML in. You can create it manually with any text editor and FTP it up to your website.

ActiveX and Javascript don't come into it - they are client side.

As Iguana sais, you can't create an XML feed with javascript.
If you can't use server side languages you have to code it by hand. :(

Maybe I'm not using the correct terminology. All I want to do is a page that reads from an exisiting RSS to display those news items on my site. I want to do that without using activeX. Can that be done? If yes, how?

Thank you very much

Jou can use a feed 2 javascript hosted tool, for example [jade.mcli.dist.maricopa.edu...] :)
