I found these articles to be a good introduction to the topic when I first stumbled across how easy it was to actually set up a feed (...at the end of last month).

[ezine-tips.com ] by Barbara J Feldman
is an article which talks about using syndication feeds as an alternative to email newsletters.

[downes.ca ] by Stephen Downes
is a brilliantly simple-to-follow tutorial on setting up your own feed.

and

[wilsonweb.com ] by Ralph F Wilson
is a very useful introduction with tips on setting up your own feed, validating the feed, submitting the feed to directories etc.

Also there are two articles at WebMonkey:

[hotwired.lycos.com ] by Jason Cook
looks at why you might want to have an RSS feed on your site and

[hotwired.lycos.com ] also by Jason Cook
looks at the difference between Atom and RSS.

Great topic, I can see I've got some reading to do here!

For you feed pros, which article above (or not above) might provide a good intro to refer someone to who wants to put MY headlines on THEIR site. I've got several frequently updated content sites which I manage with MovableType. So, if my site has an XML link available, I need to explain as simply as possible to someone else how to get my headlines/summaries on their site. I'm guessing that javascript will be the easiest, but is there a simple server-side solution that will allow the links to be properly spidered by search engines?
