RSS News Feed Help

The "Subscribe to Posts" links you find on this site all link to RSS format XML feeds.  If your browser does not recognize RSS feeds, it will either display the raw XML file, or prompt you to save the file on your computer.  Neither of those actions are terribly useful.  Almost all browsers understand RSS feeds without additional plugins or extensions with the surprising exception of Google Chrome.  This screen shot shows what it looks like in Internet Explorer.
