- I'm interested in what are the most extended or acceptable formats in
which informative content providers offer their content to
syndicators or aggregators.
Also I would like to know something about syndication of e-commerce
solutions or applications.

(also for news articles and news-related metadata), RSS (for
resource/site/news summaries), OCS (a directory format designed to help
categorize RSS-style headlines/news summaries [sort of]), and ICE (for
more sophisitcated content and data syndication). I have a list of
references to information about these different systems at the top of:
There is software around that can handle/process all these variants,
some commercial, many open-source.

- Hi All,
My name is Alis Marsden and I work for Purple Pages, which is an Irish
Content Syndication is an interest of mine and I started a directory of
content syndication resources (http://www.purplepages.ie/site/content) a
little over six months ago. I am hoping some of you may be able to help me
with an article I am writing for a newsletter.
I am interested in comparing syndication formats, primarily RSS and ICE, and
as I am not an expert on either I am really hoping that I can pick up some
comments from people who are familiar with one or both. I'd be very
grateful if any of you could send any comment you may have to this list or
to me personally. If anyone would prefer to speak over the telephone, just
mail me your number and I can give you a call.
Thank you very much,
