I think Jim has misunderstood your problem here - you're trying to take
someone else's feed and use it on your site, not feed your site out as
RSS to other people.

You need some server-side scripting (PHP would do, or whatever you can
get hosted) Then use something to turn the RSS into HTML, probably
involving some XSLT. You can find "bare" RSS->HTML converter
stylesheets in XSLT (quite hard) in many places (I've written loads and
made them public myself), then just tweak their styling (quite easy) to
look good with your site.

I don't recommend client-side XSLT for this - it only works on a few
browsers. Although it is a reasonable solution for a personal site, if
you can't get any better hosting.  Put an <iframe> on your page, then
either make the src of the iframe a reference to the RSS feed, with an
attached reference to an XSLT stylesheet (this probably needs a tiny
bit of scripting to attach the stylesheet reference).

Or (if you have no server-side scripting at all) make the contents of
the <iframe> refer to a HTML page where some JavaScript loads up an XML
"data island" (a good search term to use) and transforms it client
side. This works well, makes no demands on the server, but is highly
browser dependent.
