The Orange Chicklet Problem

John Smallberries: I am having a bit of trouble using RSS on Firefox. Whenever I click on one of the little orange RSS boxes, I am taken to a page which states, at the top, "This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it. The document tree is shown below." followed by a code listing that I presume is the document tree mentioned above. Am I supposed to do something with that? I suspect there is a real simple answer to this that will make me look like a dork, but I can cope with that if it results in figuring this out.

Randy: In the words of Dave Walker.

Dave Walker: Bright orange screams “click me”, right? What happens if the user clicks it?

Randy: I guess the user gets confused. This is gonna change. The sooner, the better.
