Is it possible to create a RSS News Feed and place it into a content block in a side column?

Hi Guys

I am in the process of transferring my oldy but goldy web site into an e-commerce site using magento.  I would really like to format the home page similarly to http://www.ascconsultants.com.au (my old site)

I have manage to create a static block and place it into the side column using CMS with its own CSS class for formatting, however when I try and enter my trusty RSS parser called RSSLib which I have had in operation for years, I can’t seem to get the PHP code to parse the feed

Any help on this would be really appreciative as I luv the solution and believe Magento will be making large changes to e-commerce framework and B2B logic by encouraging XML interfacing with partners in the near future

cheers from wikitec
