Subject: Generating RSS from XHTML page?

Did anybody do such things? Attached is my first attempt which is obviously 
not succesful. (I am not interested in DB-only solution like website DTD, 
just to generate RSS -- or Atom, it doesn't matter -- from a page or set 
of pages in one directory).

	Thanks for any hints,

  </para></warning><para>It used to be a very often (too often) used (and misused) proverb in the November Turnover of regime in the Czechoslovakia of 1989, that&ldquo;it is better to light a candle than curse the darkness&rdquo;. I was thinking about it today when listening to the wonderful sermon by Roberto Miranda, pastor from another Bostonian Pentecostal church (Congregacion Leon de Juda). His sermon was very original and deep interpretation of the Jesus words&ldquo;anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.&rdquo; (Luke&nbsp;18:17) The main idea was that what we are mising and what Jesus puts here as a precondition of entering the kingdom (which is active verb, not passive waiting) is<emphasis>innocence</emphasis>.
  </para><para>His main explanation of innocence was to put into contradiction with sophistication which is so much valued in the current world (and it is easy to understand where this idea came to him when preparing for sermon in a church in the middle between Harvard and MIT). I am saying it again that it was very important and strong sermon, which obviously touched many hearts and I have no doubts that the Holy Spirit was in his work there. However, one minor thought was still present in my head. With reference to<ulink url="http://jollyblogger.typepad.com/jollyblogger/2004/08/repost_chestert.html";>David Wayne</ulink> and in order to be more positive I would say that I would welcome to put this sermon more in the atmosphere of&ldquo;detached playfulness&rdquo; as prescribed to Christians by Chesterton. It seems to me actually

   </para><para>Is the African-American community really underdeveloped, high-crime, and disorderly? What of these are self-fulfilling prophecies? Perception of the black community as dirty or unmaintained street cleaning in Roxbury/Dorchester/Mattapan? Why a street in Roxbury seems to be more dirty/shabby than the one on the Beacon Hill (for partial explanation see)? It shouldn't be because of poverty of its inhabitans should not make difference on the municipal services? Does it?
