Julian: I expect a lot more of that as RSS catches on with the mainstream. CSS isn’t viable in a feed, so if you need specific font colors and sizes, or specific layouts, you’re gonna use font tags and tables.

And if you’re already going down that road, why not just serve some tag soup and get on with it?

”if you need specific font colors and sizes, or specific layouts”

You beat me to it with the second part of your comment. If you want to control that stuff, just make me go to your regular web page.

re: ”RSS catches on with the mainstream”

true, but should we consider Google mainstream? I mean, if CNN or maybe my local paper did this, fine…I can understand. But I figured Google would *get* this stuff.
