Update Causes Unread Post in RSS Reader (3 posts)

    Is there a plug-in or hack that will cause an RSS reader to display an update to a site (using the <ins> tags). For example, I create a post. A few days later, I update the post adding content with the <ins> tag. I would like an RSS reader to let the subcriber know that there's an update to a previous post. I really can't think of any other way to describe this. I hope I gave enough info.

    Has anyone ever figured out how to solve this problem?

    There is no solution to this problem. That's not what RSS does or what it's for.

    If you want to send a new post for people to read, then make a new post instead. If you make updates to old posts, then people who have already read that post may miss your updates. There's no technical solution to that because it's not really a technical problem.
