Hints on the usage of RSS-Feeds of the Federal Office for Radiation Protection (BfS) which you can subscribe to on these pages.

What is RSS?
RSS is a platform-independent format based on the markup language XML and developed for exchanging news and other web contents. RSS is the abbreviation of "Really Simple Syndication".
With the help of a special software ("RSS-Reader"), but also with the more recent versions of today’s established internet browsers, such as Mozilla Firefox or Internet Explorer, one can read RSS files and track changes on a website. There are applications free of charge and commercial ones for reading RSS files. A survey of what programs are available and further information can be found, e.g., at http://www.rss-scout.de/ or http://www.rss-verzeichnis.de/.
In contrast to HTML pages, RSS files, which are provided in so-called "feeds", do not contain design and layout elements. Thus, users can read and process these files independent of their platform. Contents of RSS files can be presented and read in any particular way on websites, in intranets (non-public computer networks), or desktop software (such as in screen savers or the like).
From the user’s point of view, the major benefit of RSS is that time is saved. Without having to visit the sites, the user gets a quick survey of what has changed and whether they have been updated. Thus, the traffic on the sites is reduced, too, files can be downloaded faster.
How to subscribe to RSS?
As soon as you have installed an RSS reader or internet browser on your computer, you can subscribe to a feed. Unlike a subscription to a newsletter, you needn’t provide your e-mail address.
The Federal Office for Radiation Protection offers several different feeds on this site (in German). Each feed has its own address (URL). Add this address to your RSS reader or internet browser.
Move your mouse to the symbol of the respective feed and press the right mouse button. In the choice box, select "Copy Link" when using the Internet Explorer as your browser, or "Copy Link Address" when you have installed Mozilla Firefox as your browser.
Then, add the address at the respective place in your RSS-Reader/internet browser. Press the right mouse button and then click "Paste" or use the shortcut Ctrl+V. Now you have subscribed to the feed and can use the offer.
You will find details on the usage of your RSS reader or internet browser in the manual or the help function of the respective program.
