Improved Version by Duesentrieb

Also have a look at User:Duesentrieb/RSS for a modified version with a few more features -- Duesentrieb 01:29, 2 May 2005 (UTC)

This includes converting different charsets using iconv and an option to hide the description (shortened list). Thanks for your help , Duesentrieb, I didnt feel like messing with the charset conversion especially. mutante 22:31, 5 May 2005 (UTC)
