i noticed in the article: http://aspnet.4guysfromrolla.com/articles/031903-1.aspx <BR>that the xml text reader class was used to render an xml document, however, no XSL stylesheet was used. im new to all this XML stuff, but i thought you needed to give the formatting details to the rendering object (in this case the XmlTextReader)... i don&#039;t understand how it is rendered without the stylesheet. <BR><BR>i have tried to render the following RSS XML feed with the same code from the above article: <BR>http://www.edna.edu.au/service/headline/vet <BR>and it doesn&#039;t work. <BR><BR>do i need an XSL stylesheet? <BR>why won&#039;t it work? <BR>is there some standard XSL stylesheet that would render this and include the images? <BR><BR>help!
