Displaying feeds with a CSS file.

About: atom feed control item

Is there also a plan to have CSS for those who do not use Bloglines ?

Look at it now ... that is using the CSS file from blogspot.com

And here is my Bozo Faust blog at blogspot.com using the same CSS file ... kind of shows me that i have quite a bit more work to get the format right

On both of those you can see the actual feed with a view source.

(I took the liberty of changing the topic of this item to refocus it ... perhaps we can discuss comments in another item)

When I look at a feed in Firefox I get the message "
This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below." indicating that there is no pointer to CSS. Bloglines manages a format of it's own. Is it contemplated that there is some mutation of the CSS for this website that can be used to format the feed.

i don't understand the question

Seth says
yeah i think i can point to a CSS file for formatting ... i tried it last time u asked that question and it seemed to work .. it is just a matter of finding one that is reasonable to use or could be modified to be. I keep wondering why this is so important to you since viewing the feed itself is always gonna be a poor substitute for viewing the web site. Unless you are aggregating the feed with others like at bloglines etc, there is not much use in even looking at it. Is there? .... Getting the massesses to understand feeds is a major headache for the blogosphere ... i wish there was an easy way to explain it.

Actually, I am more concerned about the comments. I like the format here, that's all. For my purposes in the UnhackTheBrain project I will probably provide some post processing of feeds to suit the project's purposes.

Feeds may be the avenue for copy to other groups

Hmm.... why process the feeds ... why not put that process the database directly ?
