a css challenge: how to style rss-feeds...

hi,

is there a way to style rss-feeds so you can insert spacing BETWEEN
them? for example here..

http://www.mayacove.com/news.html

it seems impossible to style so you can insert spacing in between the
headlines.. is there a way around this??

code for this is javascript code, thus:

<script language="JavaScript"
src="http://itde.vccs.edu/rss2js/feed2js.php?src=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.nytimes.com%2Fser vices%2Fxml%2Frss%2Fnyt%2FAmericas.xml&chan=n&num= 3&desc=3&date=y&targ=n"
type="text/javascript"></script>
thank you..

Not *that* impossible. Add to the CSS:

li.rss_item { margin-bottom:1em; }
a.rss_item { display:block; margin-top:.5em; }

First line above affects spacing between feed items.
Second line above provides spacing between headline and its lede,
posting info, etc.
Change the numeric values to taste.
