NewsML is a packaging and metadata format for news content, similar to PRISM and RSS. NewsML is developed by the International Press Telecommunications Council (IPTC), a consortium of news providers, mostly in the print or wire-service industries. Since it deals only with packaging and metadata, NewsML is complementary both to news content formats like NITF and to syndication protocols like ICE. Several major news providers, including Reuters and Agence France Presse, either use or intend to use NewsML for their news feeds.
