RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. RSS feeds include headlines and brief summaries of stories on a web site such as www.galvestondailynews.com, with links to the full story on the web site itself.
You'll need to use an RSS reader, also known as a "news aggregator," to collect and display your selected RSS feeds. Some Web browsers, like Mozilla Firefox have support for RSS built in. Also some popular programs like Outlook have RSS built in.
Search in software sites such as CNET's Download.com for a reader that will work on your platform.
If your browser supports it, simply click on the RSS button next to a feed, then follow the instructions to subscribe to it.
With many browsers, however, you'll need to right-click (or control-click) on the RSS button, select "Copy link to clipboard" (or something similar), then switch to your RSS reader and paste the URL into a feed setup window. The procedure for subscribing to a feed will vary according to the RSS reader you use, however, so you'll need to consult the program's help or documentation for more details.
