Are All RSS Feeds The Same Format?

Are all RSS feeds in the same format?

No, all RSS feeds are not all in the same format. There are a number of versions of the RSS specification. There is also a competing specification, called Atom. Atom is thought of as a superior specification but is far less popular than RSS. To the end user there is no discernible difference to content created using the various specifications. Currently RSS 2.0 is the most popular and widely used format for content syndication, this is in part because of the popularity of podcasting and  as RSS 2.0's support for the enclosure field.

Most RSS readers support all of the RSS formats, and will display a feed as long as it conforms to  the specifications of one of the valid formats.
