What are RSS feeds and where can I find them on this site?

As explained in our tags overview page describing 'RSS', our RSS feeds (or 'channels') syndicating content on this site "include full or summarized text, plus metadata such as publishing dates and authorship".  

Often RSS feeds on our site also include enriched metadata, specifying a wide range of tags associated with content.

Technically, we provide RSS feeds on this site in RSS 2.0 format with content rendered as XML 1.0 and encoded as UTF-8.  

Wherever you find RSS icons (see illustration), these link to feeds exporting content and related metadata
