I'm not sure if this answers your question or not, but I've put RSS content
into a wiki page and then linked to the ?action=raw version of the page for
use in RSS readers. I've also done this with json so that I could use a bit
of ajax in another page in the site, but that's obviously another topic. So
if your page is somesite.com/News you may want
somesite.com/NewsFeed?action=raw to be your rss. Viewing NewsFeed without
the ?action=raw provides useless output.
