Hey, I wanted to ask a simple question. I wanted to syndicate a IGN RSS Feed, the only problem is that the text/font formatting is messed up. The text and the Links are way to big (font size 20px or something). Does anybody know how to format this RSS feed? I allready have CSS formatting in the page where I syndicate this, but it doesn't work on this feed... I don't get it.. Does anybody have a clue? The piece of code is beneath...
Thanks in advance people!


[!--quoteo--][div class=\'quotetop\']QUOTE[/div][div class=\'quotemain\'][!--quotec--]<?php /* PHP RSS Reader v1.1
By Richard James Kendall Bugs to richard@richardjameskendall.com Free to use, please acknowledge me Place the URL of an RSS feed in the $file variable.
The $rss_channel array will be filled with data from the feed,
every RSS feed is different by by and large it should contain:
Array {
[TITLE] = newsfeed
[DESCRIPTION] = feed description
[LINK] = link to their website
[IMAGE] = Array {
[URL] = url of image
[DESCRIPTION] = alt text of image
}
[ITEMS] = Array {
[0] = Array {
[TITLE] = item title
[DESCRIPTION] = item description
[LINK = a link to the story
}
.
.
.
}
}
By default it retrives the Reuters Oddly Enough RSS feed. The data is put into the array
structure so you can format the information as you see fit.
