Xanga & RSS?

Hi All,

Does xanga allow you to use RSS for the various blogs on there? Lots of my friends use Xanga and I'd like to put their blogs on My Yahoo via RSS instead of surfing to each of their respective Xanga site separately.

Thanks

Try one of the following

http://www.xanga.com/rss.aspx?user=[enter username here]

If Yahoo has trouble digesting the RSS feed from the above link someone was nice enough to create and host a php script that will make the the RSS feed from xanga more palatable.

Hope this helps.
