Live XML

RadRotator has support for live XML feeds. You can make use of this feature very easily - all you need to do is use a XmlDataSource source and set it to the URL of the live feed. Finally, you might need to set the XmlDataSource's XPath (e.g. "rss/channel/item" for RSS feeds).This way you could easily deliver public news to your site using your own formatting and styling.
