This may involved custom module development on my part - I am not sure. The RSS feed I want to use looks like this:

 

<rss version="2.0" xmlns:product="http://www.buy.com/rss/module/product/">
  <channel>
    <title>Buy.com - The Internet Superstore</title> 
    <link>http://www.buy.com/rss/feed.asp?loc=273&grp=4</link> 
    <description>Home Products</description> 
    <language>en-us</language> 
    <docs>http://www.buy.com/rss/default.asp</docs> 
    <image>
      <title>Buy.com</title> 
      <url>http://ak.buy.com/buy_assets/corp/buy_logo.gif</url> 
      <link>http://www.buy.com</link> 
    </image>
    <item>
      <title>Product Title</title> 
      <description>Product Description including HTML with images and links</description> 
      <link>URL link to Product</link> 
      <pubDate>Fri, 07 Apr 2006 08:00:00 GMT</pubDate> 
      <enclosure url="http://ak.buy.com/db_assets/prod_images/999/99999999.jpg" type="image/jpeg" /> 
      <product:content
            sku="99999999"
            price="$99.99"
            description="Text only product description"
            imageUrl="http://ak.buy.com/db_assets/prod_images/999/99999999.jpg" />
    </item>
  </channel>
</rss>
At a minimum I'd like to get all of the HREF tags in the DESCRIPTION to show up in a DNN block/module. Ideally I'd like to
get some of the other tags to show up to (product image, description, etc). I can access my feed directly via XML and I have tried putting that into a DNN RSS feed block. However what happens in that there is HTML withing the <description> tags and I end up seeing HTML all over the place in the module. Very ugly! Ideally I'd like to get that HTML interpreted.
 
Any thoughts or suggestions we be appreciated.

Use the standard DNN RSS News module, consume your feed, then transform the display using XSL as needed. Lee has a good tutorial regarding this here.

Thanks Scott. You are two for two for me this morning.

If anybody is interested here is a good XML/XSL editor.

This actually worked out pretty good. His demo was to display data from an RSS feed. I was consuming an RSS feed - so his demo xsl work for me out of the box. Thanks.
