I have a XML feed from a mediaservice, which I would like to show nicely on our web-page. I also have a standard XLS file from the mediaservice, but I'm not that into XLS etc to know exactly how to load the feed along with the stylesheet, and get it shown nicely.

I have full access to change everything in the XLS or greate HTML files, but I dont have access to change the XML feed.

The XML feed is retreived from this location:  http://meltwaternews.com/magenta/xml/html/20/49/rss/152509_hitsentence.rss2.XML

The style is shown below:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform" version="1.0">
<xsl:output method="html" encoding="iso-8859-1"/>

<xsl:template match="/feeds">
     body     { color: #000000; background-color: #ffffff; }
     H2 {font-size: 13pt; font-family: Arial;}
     a:link   {color: #006c43}
     a:visited{color: #006c43;}
     a:hover  {color: gray;}
     .date  {font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial;}
     .source  {font-size: 9pt; font-family: Arial;}
     .title  {font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial; color: #006c43; text-decoration: underline;}
     .ingress {font-size: 10pt; font-style: italic; font-family: Times;}
     .match {font-size: 10pt; font-style: italic; font-family: Verdana, arial, sans-serif;}
     .title a:link {font-size: 10pt; font-family: Arial; color: #006c43; text-decoration: underline;}
     .title a:visited{color: #006c43;}
     .title a:hover  {color: gray;}

<xsl:template match="feed">
 <h2><xsl:value-of select="name"/></h2>
 <table border="0">
   <xsl:for-each select="documents/document">
     <xsl:if test="(alike&lt;2 or docId=alike)">
         <td nowrap="" valign="top">
           <span class="date"><xsl:value-of select="createDate2"/>,</span> <span class="source"><xsl:value-of select="sourcename"/></span>
           <div class="title">
               <xsl:attribute name="href"><xsl:value-of select="url"/></xsl:attribute>
               <xsl:attribute name="target">_blank</xsl:attribute>
               <xsl:value-of select="title2"/>
           <span class="ingress"><xsl:value-of select="ingress"/></span>
