    What do you mean?

    XML is just another way of serving data. So an XML-feed is created from a database(or whatever data source) the same way an ordinary dynamic site is created.

    I guess you are talking about using XML-feeds so that XML-software can read and interpret them correctly? (Like firefox etc)

    Then you need to follow one of the supported standards for XML-feeds. For example RSS and Atom is two good choices.

    I too would like to know how to display an XML feed on my website. I would like to take the XML feed from an articles website and have those articles from a particular category automatically pubished on my website.

    I'm sure I'm missing something but I just dont really know where to start

    Think of an XML document as a sort of database. It contains data and this data is stored in a special tree structure. In order to display this data on web pages you need to parse the XML document and "extract" the data from it.
    You can structure an XML document in the rss or atom formats and most browsers will automatically parse the document and display the data - a bit like a normal HTML document.
    If you want to display certain parts of an XML document on certain pages, you'll need to parse it first.

    There are lots of free software that will do this and that can be implemented in your websites. Some are easy to use, some are not. My personal favorite is magpie rss, but thats just because it works and I've never tried another... You can easily find parsers by searching on you favorite search engine.

    www.w3schoools.com is a good place to read some more about XML documents.

    There is one great feature of using RDF/XML to create your feeds: you can run your RDF file through the W3C Validator in order to see how everything is working "under the hood":

    Validation result including triples of the data model, RDF/XML source code & graph of the data model

    The above is a simple feed to provide subscribers with ongoing updates and changes to one of my web sites. I use RDF/XML, XHTML+RDFa & Dublin Core Metadata for all my data extraction/manipulation and feed generation.

    I've posted a howto on using Feedburner to sanitize and convert a feed into HTML. Its a non-programming way to do it, and for most purposes it shall suffice in terms of practical reality.

    http://www.feedburner.com/

    Look under Publicize --> BuzzBoost

    BuzzBoost

    Have feed, will travel. BuzzBoost republishes your burned feed's content as go-anywhere HTML. Want to promote your blog on another site you manage? BuzzBoost gives you a snippet of JavaScript you can paste into your page templates.

    So I've read all this and not sure if I'm still on earth. I created a weather website using sparkle because I'm not a coder. I would like to get a bloger.com page and/or a feed from National weather service to load on my page. National weather service (NWS) provides live weather data feeds in RSS and XML. How do I get the data in the RSS or XML feed from NWS to load on a page? I know what the RSS and XML are/do but I don't get any of this CGI, API, SEO. I don't have .NET framework. All I have is a registered domain name, a FTP client to upload the finished pages, a webserver to host and sparkle web design software.
