I know this discussion has been done before, but it never felt like
there was a clear consensus or a culmination of the discussion. So, what
do we think about adding XSL stylesheets for the feeds, a la the BBC ?
As far as I can tell, the arguments for boil down to:
# Improves usability considerably, especially with "greener" users; is
much better than their being presented with a screen full of raw XML.
# Has very little overhead - even the complex BBC example's XSL
stylesheet is a mere 6KB, which is insignificant even to dial-up users.
WordPress's would be even leaner.
# Is aesthetically pleasing, if you're concerned with such things
What are/were the arguments against? It'd be nice to get this settled
once and for all.
