Work-Around for RSS Viewed With IE6 (XML/XSL)?

My RSS works perfectly with IE7 and FF.  I understand IE6 does not natively support RSS.  Since 50% of my visitors have IE6, I need to have a work-around solution.  I've read some discussions about using XML in conjunction with XSL to resolve this problem.  As a note, I am not using ASP or .NET.  1. If I use the XML/XSL solution for IE6, does this affect the IE7/FF crowd?  Anyhow, if someone could include the XSL code I need for my attached XML code, I would be greatly appreciative.  I'm a novice and really need things spelled out (thanks for your patience).  My XML code should be attached to this message.

Thank you for any help!

Here is an excellent resource that provides code for download:
http://www.xefteri.com/articles/show.cfm?id=24

It could be your starting point, since this is something that YOU should code  because you need to decide which RSS elements you want to display, and how you want them positioned on the page.

Note, however, that RSS Feed readers typically remember what the user has read and has options for hiding read items, in addition to other features like sorting by date, title, etc. The solution you are seeking will only transform the data into user-friendly version for reading online, but it is not really a substitute for an rss feed reader.
