RSS feeds and websites for mobile devices

I noted from the Who R U Thread, that there are a few professional full-time IT people here so, I pose 4U a couple of questions and their subsets.

1. Is there a way one can convert a website for mobile devices? Has anyone any experience with Avantgo and how it works?

2. How does RSS work and how does one create a feed from their website?

1. When I created mobile site versions, whether manually or using an automated process, I basically removed all the images and made the only contain text, using text links rather than buttons.

2. RSS feeds scale down website news/blog entries or forum posts, etc., generally to a text-only version that can be opened on mobile devices or thorugh a feed reader. Feeds are normally generated by PHP processors- here are some examples:

- (The latest thread link comes from the forum's feed)
- (Link to feeds and latest threads generated by feeds)
- (This forum's feed- I've seen Safari format in nicely. It shows the forum's 15 latest threads.)
