I am new to RSS world but after reading about RSS i came to know the following and want you guys to help me in validating my understanding

1) If i have 100 pages on my web site and i want to make 10 pages as RSS enabled, then in that case i would need to create one RSS.XMl file that will contain data in pre defined RSS format (with channel, items etc). For each 10 pages i will have 10 blocks of ITEMS in my RSS.XML file. Is it correct?

2) Once this is ready i can host this XML file on my web site and aggregators like yahoo or google (or any other) can take this URL of the XML file as request query string to publish them on their website. Once the RSS content start apearing on the my yahoo.com website i can click on the heading of the news that will take the user to my website's news page. Is it correct?

3) I just have to specify link, summary and title of the RSS feed news. I dont have to give the full news in RSS.XML. Later when news is published in obe of the agregator like MyYahoo.com then i can click on the news heading that will take me to my website's page (for that news). Is it correct?

One question - My page is very big and contains 600 lines of news content. How do i define teaser or summary for that page that i need to put as description in RSS.XML file (later which will be shown as small description about that news on agregators website)
