Is there a way to get a rss for a special part of the

Template:In_the_news, for example. It's because this could actually be
a useful rss news feed. I guess not, because it would require a little
hacking to make that page computer readable...
Quite so. Somebody would have to write a script to parse either the
wikitext or the HTML and extract the "items" in a meaningful way.
People have done this with a few pages, according to
, but no feed for
that one is listed there.
There have also been various feature requests for creating a feed from
the history of a page, the activity in a category, and for user
watchlists (the last being particularly difficult because people like
their watchlists to stay private). See
Creating a "standard" (i.e. official part of the software) feed from
actual items within a page is a little more complex, and it's hard to
see how to do it in a "standard" way.
