I never realised that we had this stylesheet. I have now replaced my 
embryonic one in the feeder plugin with this one. If you do enhance it 
please apply the patch there too (I'll remove it from trunk once I am 
sure feeder can adequately replace core functionality - I wasn't aware 
of any when I wrote feeder).

RSS 0.91 is very common, I believe RSS1.0 is compatible.

RSS2.0 seems to becoming quite common.

ATOM is certainly popular

RDF, at least in my experience is less popular for simple news 
syndication, but much more widely used in more complex environements.
