More information:
This program describes the development of a very simple custom server control used to display the content returned from an RSS feed. The control consumes a public web service to retrieve the current data from an RSS feed and the control displays the content along with a user defined label. The public web service returns the feed content as straight HTML which greatly simplifies the process of displaying the data.
