RSS Feeds via Javascript

Most of the substance of these tips are bouncing around elsewhere, but now Alan, with some help from D’Arcy, wrap up the key elements of rendering RSS feeds into any web presentation (page, weblog, course) in a nice tidy package:

It makes use of a PHP script (demo version running on our server) that parses the XML feed, and returns a JavaScript set of write commands that insert the information into your page. All you need to do is to insert a simple JavaScript line of code in the part of your page where you want the feed. The only other thing to tidy it up is to link or insert a style sheet to format the output.
