Thanks, this may save me a lot of time actually.

Good grief, sounds like the browsers are just dropping default support for
a perfectly simple and useful protocol that websites use but browsers don't
support.

I guess the CNN rss feed must /look/ like it's working because it looks OK
in those other browsers that don't support RSS, but I think CNN must have
some automation that maybe looks at the HTTP request and determines whether
to send the RSS data raw, or send an HTML version of it if the browser
doesn't support it.

Easy to prove; I grabbed a snapshot of the CNN rss feed with curl(1) to a
foo.xml, look at the result to verify it's RSS data, then try to open that
static content in those same browsers, and it "looks broken", and nothing
like one sees if browsing to the RSS link directly; the latter must be
"faked" RSS.

Well I don't think trying to make the browsers look good by doing their job
for them by translating the RSS into HTML, so unless there's some other
way, it's just "too bad" for users with browsers that dropped RSS support.
