I’ve subscribed to a new RSS feed that’s injecting styles into posts — each post is surrounded by a FONT tag that makes the text Arial, instead of the default Times New Roman that Outlook (I use NewsGator) would render in if not for the tag.
I always felt that RSS allowed you to put forth content without context — pure content without an asthetic filter, so-to-speak. Styling feeds would seem to defeat that goal.
Should people style their RSS feeds? Should news aggregators give users the option to strip styles from posts when they’re displayed? What is too much style? If there’s an image with a post, it’s nice to let that wrap right or left as the author intended, but should you draw the line at font changes?
