    Q & A

    What is RSS?
    It's a format that allows us at to pack our latest headlines and summaries together for browsing at your convenience. We have RSS links to all of our different kinds of First Amendment news, so you can link to the topics that interest you most.

    Why use RSS?
    Many people have several Web sites they like to visit, but do not have time to check them all. With RSS you can grab the latest headlines from these sites without the chore of checking them manually, and go directly to the material you like.

    How do I use RSS?
    To use our RSS feed, you’ll need an RSS reader (also known as aggregator). Its job is to remember which RSS feeds you want, get the latest headlines from them, and format them for your screen. Readers are available as both stand-alone computer programs and as Web sites. If you use the Firefox Web browser, there are also RSS plugins available such as Sage.

    Where can I find a reader?
    An extensive list of Web-based and stand-alone RSS readers is available at
