From Jon Udell is a nice little piece that describes a great way to create lightweight HTML from an RSS feed using XSLT. Credit for the code should go to Robert Ivanc. This kind of lightweight feed would be better for reading with a phone or PDA, for example. Less HTML overhead. What Jon fails to mention is that its not specific to his site. For example, here is the lightweight HTML for this site. Of course, I may want different colors, etc. and that's easy enough to do, but all I did to create this link was change Jon's URL to mine. What's really important here is how easy this is to do. A few years ago, this sort of thing would have required high priced content management software. Now, its all based on standards and makes a nice lunchtime project.
