Attach a CSS to RSS feedTag(s): XML


Browser (ex. IE7/FF) may apply their own style when displaying a RSS Feed so even if you specify a stylesheet it will be ignored.

You add a directive to the XML file.

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<?xml-stylesheet title="XSL_formatting" type="text/xsl" href="feed.xsl"?>

<rss version="2.0">
...
then, in the XSL
<?xml version="1.0"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
   version="1.0">
<xsl:template match="channel">

<head>
<link title="mystyle" href="howto.css"

<link rel='alternate' type='application/rss+xml'

<title>What's new - Real's HowTo</title>
