Simple RSS

Hi All,
I'm sure this has been answered somewhere, but if someone could direct me to the post, I'd appreciate it.

I need to add the capability to display RSS feeds on my web site. I do not want to use JavaScript, as I want search engine spiders to analysis this feed. Can someone recommend a simple RSS feed? Simple is the operative word here...

Thanks in advance....

Are these your feeds or are you trying to use someone else's content?

Hi Bill,
I'm trying to use someone else content. I need to pick up paragraphs of text, and insert them on to one of my web pages. I want to be able to pick up this text, and apply my own formatting. I'm assuming that there has to be a RSS reader that is simple to use, for the basic requirements that I have.

Oh and one more comment, I want serach engine spiders to be able to read the RSS text, so I guess JavaScript is out. PHP is fine....

We have a tutorial in our Library [webmasterworld.com]: Short guide to include RSS on your website [webmasterworld.com]
It tells you how to use Magpie to include feeds in your site.

Other than that there are a ton of scripts out there that will do this. Script repositories like HotScripts list several. The keywords "RSS HTML PHP" on any search engine also bring up a bunch of paid and free options.
