Default RSS Feeds

Does anybody have any information or know of tutorials about plugging an RSS feeds into a website using php. I am on a public server, so I can't install software.

Are all RSS feeds formated in the same standards date, title, description, etc. ? Can you edit what stories show up on your site? I have a site that wants RSS feeds plugged in from different sites.

Any help would be appreciated.
Mike

I think you need copy only PHP scripts for RSS feed, not some installation on your server is required.

As I did here: http://www.aussieblog.com.au/

So looking at your source do you just add the individual links to the different stories or are those provided for you? Is there a way to pick and choose what stories display on your site? Where did you learn about how to set this up? I know when I go to some sites if you click their link it's just a bunch of xml, for example Apples rss feed they use
<item>
<title></title>
<link></link>
<description></description>
<pubDate></pubDate>
</item>

are there set standards for every rss feed or are they customized per site?

Thank You
Mike
