If you looking for hiring a developer to do this, contact me through the information found on my profile page

If you want a solution from this forum. At least let us now what you mean by formatting.
Do you need to make HTML from these pages?

Then this could be a first step

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<xsl:stylesheet xmlns:xsl="http://www.w3.org/1999/XSL/Transform"
    xmlns:atom="http://www.w3.org/2005/Atom"
    version="1.0">
    
    <xsl:template match="/rss">
        <html>
            <head/>
            <body>
                <xsl:apply-templates select="channel"/>
            </body>
        </html>
    </xsl:template>
    
    <xsl:template match="channel">
        <h1><a href="{link}"><xsl:value-of select="title"/></a></h1>
        <xsl:apply-templates select="item"/>
    </xsl:template>
    
    <xsl:template match="item">
        <h3><a href="{link}"><xsl:value-of select="title"/></a></h3>
        <p><xsl:value-of select="pubDate"/></p>
        <p><xsl:apply-templates select="description"/></p>
        <xsl:if test="enclosure[contains(@type, 'image')]">
            <img src="{enclosure/url}"/>
        </xsl:if>
    </xsl:template>
    
    <xsl:template match="description">
        <xsl:value-of select="." disable-output-escaping="yes"/>
    </xsl:template>
    
</xsl:stylesheet>

if you change line 17
<xsl:apply-templates select="item"/>

into

<xsl:apply-templates select="item[position() &lt;= 5]"/>

you will get the top 5 only
