Hmm, last time I checked several didn't - Amaya, Lynx, not sure about
(audio) readers, I doubt whether a good proportion of the mobile
browsers have XSLT.

Another question might be what other agent's behaviour is likely to be
on encountering the XSLT reference.  (I can't remember what the docs
say on this point, need to read up). It wouldn't exactly be desirable
for an RSS aggregator to read an RSS feed, transform it into HTML and
wonder what went wrong...

It does sound potentially a lot better than raw XML.

What specificaly did you have in mind, something like including a
default stylesheet in the feed, where the user could swap it's URI?
