Develop an RSS Reader with AJAX and PHP

Mr. Jack D Herrington, Senior Software Engineer, Leverage Software, Inc. have written an article how to create an RSS reader using AJAX and PHP on IBM developerWorks.

The first thing I thought about doing when I read about requesting Extensible Markup Language (XML) from JavaScript code on a Web page was to get some RSS and display it. But I immediately ran into the security issue of XML Hypertext Transfer Protocol (HTTP), where a page that comes from www.mysite.com can’t address pages from anywhere other than www.mysite.com. My plans to build a generic RSS reader in just the page were dashed.
