Does this news feed work?  I'm asking because I've used the Feedreader
application and RSSXpress (at <http://rssxpress.ukoln.ac.uk/>) to try
and view it since it was first released and with both I receive no
information.  Both of these RSS viewers allow me to view the main W3C
RSS feed (http://www.w3.org/2000/08/w3c-synd/home.rss).

Note that the RSS resource does serve an XML file. 

Ahh just tried both in Internet Explorer.  I now find that:
http://www.w3.org/QA/Overview.rss
gives me IE's view of a valid XML file but
http://www.w3.org/2000/08/w3c-synd/home.rss
gives me formatted output.

Possibly one is using IE's client-side XSLT transformation??

Anyway there is a QA issue here!
