Fumbling towards xml..

I am considering a way to get around the fact that the free Blogspot offers no RSS (or any other type of) feeds. I'm thinking about changing my template to actually produce RSS instead of HTML. XSLT will be used to give a decent blog-like presentation in a web browser, a la mezzoblue. (But I promise I thought of this before I knew anyone else had done it.. am I still 1337?) Things holding me back:
  • say bye-bye to browsers like Opera and Safari that really are just web browsers, not XML engines like Mozilla
  • Google will continue insert their HTML ads into the RSS feed, which will most likely make the XML invalid.
  • Do I really have time to be messing with this?
