    You can't design your website for RSS other than creating a link to your RSS feed. Are you asking what the RSS standards are and how to create an RSS feed? These websites may help:

    TAKE A WALK OUTSIDE YOUR MIND.

    Hyperbolik, technically you could design your website using RSS, you could transform the RSS feed using XSLT into HTML and then apply style or parse or embed the data into the main body of a news page (for example). Though I am unsure exactly what the OP is trying to accomplish in terms of design.

    Err, nope it doesn't, RSS Feeds require less markup than any HTML document I have ever come across, the only time the length of the feed would be "big" is if you didn't provide a "cut off point" as to how far back your news stories and announcements go, and that's just a bad idea.

    Don't put 2000 items in your RSS feed. Put the 25 or so most recent and if you want people to get back articles that way add a paging mechanism to your feed.
