"aggregation / reader validation" time?

Greetings,

I am getting rather famiilar with RSS., but I still have a few
questions.

I set up my RSS link at
http://www.ottawa-theologyontap.com/..._resources.xml, but when
I use a reader (eg. I am using yahoo.ca), the items titles show up, but
there is no header information..at first. It seems that it only after
a few hours?? the header information (name of the site), comes
through. Is this right?

Yet.... on more formal sites (like cnn.com), when I add a new RSS feed,
the header information comes through immediately. I thought initially
that I coded my XML wrong, so I literally stole one of CNNs XML sorce
codes and used it to make mine.

So my question is this:
1) Is it true that a sort of "aggregation / reader validation" occurs?
1b) on sites that are formal (like cnn or sony.com) is this somehow
bypassed?

Please HELP!
Derek
