I haven't done anything with RSS yet, but tracking the changes on any particular web page sounds very usefull.
What RSS reader are you using?
Dave S.
I have my RSS reader set to track changes on the what's new page. That is an alternative if you have a reader that does that. The web site person doesn't have to have a RSS link that way.
Of course it is even better when we get the news *before* Tom and Maria post it for the hoi polloi.

I use something called BlogMatrix
I've had it for a long, long time as I was in on its beginnings. They have
since moved on to specialize in podcasts. I like it because it will check
static pages as well as feeds, and you can set how often you want them
checked--from every 30 minutes to once a day.
There is, a version of the (old) RSS reader listed on download.comhttp://www.blogmatrix.com/home/main/Vicki">http://www.download.com/BlogMatrix-Jager/3000-9227_4-10315721.htmlThe current page for the software is:http://www.blogmatrix.com/home/main/Vicki

Another option for RSS readers is www.rssfwd.com, a site that will  forward=
 the new links  to your email. I use it for all of my RSS feeds so that I c=
an view them in my regular email client. Some people might prefer this.

It's a good service, but it only works if the page actually *has* an RSS 
feed. Right now, Tom and Maria haven't put feeds on their pages, so the 
client I recommend is useful because it tracks changes/updates in the 
text on the page.
