    Need assistance with XML feed for Indeed

    Hey guys,

    I am a bit confused on this process and am hoping someone with a little bit more experience can assist me. Basically I am working with the indeed.com XML feed so that jobs submitted on my site can be seen at indeed.com, and jobs submitted at indeed.com will be seen at my website. Indeeds customer service explained to me that I will need to use this XML feed for all jobs :
    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

    Although the customer service had no programming experience so I was unable to ask deeper questions. My questions are :

    1.) How do I submit this XML feed daily to indeed?

    2.) All content must be enclosed in <![CDATA['CONTENT']]>. I understand this but how can I take user submitted content and then place the proper content in the proper spot? I have tried using variables for php but have had no success.

    I am very new to XML but have been programming in PHP and other web languages for a while. I believe once someone can explain the general process to me I can catch on.

    Thank You,

    DolbyOver
