XML-RPC client method calls

The is a web page that has data on it that I want to display on another website.  I was told to use XML-RPC client method calls?

Can someone point me in the correct direction to understand this?

You need something like this:

If you Google XML RPC

You will find a ton of documentation.

...a web page that has data on it that I want...
Normally when a web publisher wants his content to be re-published, he will expose an API that delivers the information in a structured format.  This may be XML, or increasingly JSON format.  You should contact the original publisher and tell him that you intend to republish his content.  You should be sure that you are on legally firm ground -- not violating the terms of use or the copyright.  You should pay any syndication fees (and get a receipt).

Once you have handled those important first points, the original publisher will almost certainly help you access the data in a way that makes your programming easy.
