OpML? what?

It started off with me looking for a RSS desktop reader, because it just makes sense rather than visiting the website all the time.
First came across this first of all. RSS Info. Then I downloaded Feed reader and started to think this is good stuff but when I'm on my tablet I can always connect to the net anyway. So it got me thinking there has to be a RSS reader for the pocketpc platform?

And I wasnt wrong, Pocket Feed. Anyway moving on, I started thinking wouldnt it make sense if I could sync my rss subscripions across my tabletpc, workstation and pocketpc?

Well it seems like others have come to this point already. Using OPML for it's blogroll, you can now take your news, blog entries, or any other type of syndicated data with you, sync it wirelessly or read it offline. So yes, you can sit in Starbucks with your PDA and read the latest news over 802.11b.

So what is this opml? looking at the site theres a xslt which could be useful if I decide (or more like find the time ) to make my rss favourates available through cubicgarden.com. Kinda of like avant-go but all the subscriptions I want.

Need to find out more about Opml and get a RSS reader which exports and imports OpML.
