Syndication is an ever growing and popular means of staying in contact and embedding content of a web site. It's a type of news feed that brands the web site and it's content through end users and web sites.
RSS is a summary for Rich Site Summary or Really Simple Syndication. RSS 2.0 and and Atom are just two of the more popular types of feed formats.
If you click any of the RSS / Atom icons, the content looks like gibberish. You must have an RSS news reader or
web site function that is enable to read this type of content (XML). There are also extensions to web browsers like Mozilla that enable news feeds and "active" book marks.
