I'm hearing that complaint a lot...people don't like reading their blogs
from RSS readers because they lose the graphic design of the site.

I wonder if someone is working on an RSS browser that actually takes you to
the post's web page and uses the RSS feed just to determine when a page has
been updated... You'd have a list of the most recent posts from an RSS feed
and could move forward and backward in the list--but you would actually be
visiting the site to read the post (as opposed to reading the text from the
RSS feed).
