Does StackExchange use a tag-by-tag, XML-based feed of links to content for users, or is their system more complicated than that? I think their system for organizing and delivering their content is very cool.

Each site in the StackExchange network is backed by a SQL Server database. This database stores all of the information about the site, including the posts, the votes, the users, the moderator flags, and the tags.

Oh. That's interesting. Thank you. You see, when I was working with Drupal, some people recommended XML and some recommended SQL for storing tags. –  Wolfpack'08 Oct 23 '11 at 2:38
