How to style an Atom Feed

In order to have browsers render an XML Atom feed into HTML such that it is far easier for users to read, there are two things you must create.

  • The first is an XSL stylesheet which instructs the browser on how to transform the XML into HTML.
  • The second is a CSS stylesheet which instructs the browser on how to adorn the HTML with various styles, fonts, colors, and images in order to make the HTML more aesthetically pleasing.
