RSS beginner questions

P: n/a
I would like to add RSS to a site without PHP or ASP, so the RSS is
displayed as html, so the web page is the RSS reader. Is this possible?

TIA,
Mike

Ummm, what has this to do with javascript? Maybe an HTML or RSS group
would be more appropriate.

I think what mscir is after is a script that will load an RSS feed into
a web page and display it as HTML. Something like this example:

<URL:http://developer.apple.com/internet/webcontent/xmlhttpreq.html>

There are lots of sites that provide "RSS to HTML" services to allow
display of RSS feeds in web pages, but they make the page dependent on
the service.

RSS is being supported so ubiquitously that it hardly seems necessary.
Incidentally I think the whole idea of RSS was to get back to something
like the original, dead basic HTML but it has now be perverted to be as
rich as HTML sans DOM (essentially it is just a standardised set of XML
tags). It is full of images, advertisements and general bloat - just
use HTML and turn of Flash, images & scripting and there you have it -
RSS without the buzz words.

That's a great example, thanks very much!

Well, if you goto my site (link below), and your browser
has the capabilities, you should see a javascript
RSS news ticker running at the top of the screen.
CNN,FOX,NPR etc.

This ticker uses an AJAX javascript approach.
The ticker and another example that simply places the news on
your web page can be found in the DHTML section of my site.

You should test that page in IE6 WinXP SP2, and mouse over the content area.

Using same browser version , same OS looking at
the home page http://www.drclue.net/
and jdDHTMLib beta page http://www.drclue.net/projects/jsDHTMLlib

Moving mouse arround over both pages content seems
to work as expected, but I gather your experiancing
something different.

Yes. I get a serious flicker when mousing over the content in the beta
page. The text and the images flicker back and forth.

Asside from the flickering , is the actual scrolling smooth, or
is it jerky in addition to the flashing?

It has a slight jerk to it, but that is not near as annoying as the
scroll itself. I move the mouse and the text jumps around making it hard
to control the scroll.

Some how or another I left an event handler without a return,
but I've fixed that and did some other things with it too.
