The Criminal Jury Instructions RSS Feed
With RSS, you download special software (much of it free) called an "RSS News Reader" and then tell it what "RSS News Feed" you want it to monitor and how often to check it. An RSS News Feed is simply a specially formatted webpage on the website you are monitoring. This page is set up using a special web language that RSS Readers can interpret to notify you of updates that may be of interest and give you a specific web link to those updates. Webmasters update the RSS Feed when they make changes to the website.

Once you install an RSS News Reader, you will need to tell it to monitor this Webs page and tell it how often to do so. Notice that if you open this page in a Browser, you will see only the special coding that Readers know how to monitor and interpret correctly.
RSS technology is a major advance over prior methods of notifying people about updates to Web sites they want to monitor. You do not have to to check the Web site yourself, since the RSS Reader will automatically do this for you at regular intervals you set yourself. When the Reader finds something new, it will automatically pop up a notification on your computer with a link to the new information. If there is nothing new, the Reader leaves you in peace.
RSS is a major advance over E-mail notification services still used by many organizations. These are difficult to maintain and update and often result in people receiving unwanted E-mails even after they try to unsubscribe. With RSS, you can choose which RSS Feeds you want to monitor, and you can unsubscribe at any time simply by telling the Reader on your computer to stop monitoring the Feeds.
