I haven't looked at rss2html yet. But it would be the 'HTML' part.
Ideally I prefer reading things not in a browser. I have a couple of
scripts that open content from articles, removing HTML, using LaTeX
to get a PDF, and reading with mupdf, which is a nicer way of reading
for me. The weak point in the setup is newsbeuter, which is curses,
and therefore a bit evil. sfeed with content support could offer a
dmenu-based solution quite simply.
