Hello all,

I have been working in a RDF prototype, where I describe newspaper
articles. This description is made using metadata elements in RDF,
where we build an metadata database. My doubt is couldn't I do this
using RSS? When should I use RSS or RDF, in exactly which context?
I know that RSS is RDF but when should i use RDF or RSS in my
I took a look at some RSS examples and i noted that RSS has several
channels that include and describe several items of the headlines of
newspaper webpage, and the web page is constantly actualized, but
what happen to the old headlines when they are replace by the new
ones. Are they stored in some database?
This seems to me, the main diferrence between RDF and RSS in the
description of newspapers articles.

I hope someone can give an help on this.
Kindly regards,
