    Here is an extract from a brief I have received - I am not fully sure how to
    go about this?



    Can anybody suggest any ideas for me.

    Kind Thanks

    "The third page must display the contents of a tutor-provided XML data file.
    For this purpose, you will use one or more of the BBC News Headline RSS
    files in XML format which are available at:
    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/help/rss The RSS XML file/s must be processed by
    an ASP script that you have written. The data displayed must be selective,
    responding to user-requests for particular categories of items or according
    to certain criteria for example switching to different categories of news."

    So the bit you are stuck at is the ASP or XML or RSS?
