Question - mend, repair, fix

I want to put a 'This Day in History' feature on my website?

I have all the data that I need and I want a script that checks the date and then inserts the relevant fact. Any ideas?

Use an RSS feed from your favorite "This day in History"

What is RSS?
RSS stands for "Really Simple Syndication", and is an efficient, but powerful way to have content from your favorite Web sites delivered directly to you.

Want to get the latest TV Listings from from say THE HISTORY CHANNEL without having to constantly visit our Web site? No problem. With RSS, you can get this information quickly and easily without having to spend time navigating the Web.

How Does RSS work?
Web sites that offer RSS feeds will usually display an orange button marked "RSS" or "XML" somewhere on the page. In order to take advantage of an RSS Feed, you will need to use a Web browser that is "RSS Ready", or download a small application called an RSS Reader.

Browsers that are "RSS Ready" include Firefox (available for both Windows, and Apple Mac) and Safari (Apple Mac only). Internet Explorer does not come "RSS Ready", so users of this browser will need to download an RSS Reader such as AWASU or NEWZ CRAWLER. A simple Google search for "RSS Reader" will produce a wealth of other free Readers that are available for download.

Once your Reader has been installed, simply click on the orange "RSS" or "XML" icon and copy and paste the url of the feed into your Reader. After clicking on the orange icon you may see a page of odd-looking code. Ignore that for now - all that's important is to grab the url of the feed (in the address bar) and paste it into your RSS Reader.

What Happens Next?
Once you've added the url of your chosen feed to your RSS Reader, you're now subscribed to that feed. This means that every time a Web site updates, you'll be able to see all the latest content from within your RSS Reader. You can subscribe to as many feeds as you want (as long as the site supports RSS - remember to always look for the orange "RSS" or "XML" icons) and delete and add new feeds at will.

What RSS feeds does THE HISTORY CHANNEL offer?
THE HISTORY CHANNEL currently offers RSS feeds for the following:
Daily TV Schedule
Weekly TV Schedule
Prime Time TV Schedule
