     RSS Feed
     A single RSS Feed contains messages or news items that are published. These are variously called
      “Feeds”, “RSS Feeds”, “XML Feeds”,
     Message
     One of several items in an RSS Feed usually with a Title, Link, and Text. Messages can in fact be news
      items, blog entries, or other items published collectively in an RSS Feed.
     Enclosure
     A Message can contain a reference to one or more files that are available on the internet. The enclosure
      is not included in the file, but a Url “link” that points to the file is included in the message.
     Expire
     A Message Flag indicating the Message will be deleted. Settings are available to Expire a message after
      a certain period of time after download and to automatically delete Expired Messages.
     Update
     To download RSS Feed through a connection to the internet.
     Delete
     To remove all traces of an RSS Feed, or Message
     News Aggregator
     A general term for a program that collects the messages from multiple RSS Feeds and presents them to
      a reader. There are news aggregators that collect Feeds for display through a browser, through an email
      client, or through the aggregator’s own interface. FeederReader is a news aggregator with a built-in
      interface.
     XML
     Stands for “eXtensible Markup Language”. It is the file format in which RSS Feeds are published.
