    If you are talking about your site's rss feed, then you should use xslt: http://www.w3schools.com/xsl/

    You'll probably have to write a function or a plugin to include a .xsl stylesheet when a feed is called.

    If you go the route of learning to modify WP via PHP and plugin programming, you'll probably get to the point where you need to check if the display is within a feed (then make CSS changes). The function is_feed() should do the trick.

    Have you already searched for a plugin to do this task?

    I assume you want to modify RSS's CSS so that it looks professional. You can use feeburner service.

    Many tutorials are already available to use feedburner. Have a look at it!

    @trixoo I am using feedburner for my tech blog feeds. But didn't see anywhere CSS settings. Can you specify - how can I reach there and set some settings for my feeds.

    According to my information feeds are just xml files which contains data from blog post. It depends upon feed parser to add some css for display purpose.

    SO what is the need of CSS in feeds????????

    There is no need for CSS in feeds. As you mentioned, "[F]eeds are just xml files which contains data from blog post. It depends upon feed parser to add some css for display purpose."

    As trixoo mentioned, some people may want their feeds to look more "professional" and less like a jumbled mess of code when viewed in browsers, though some browsers add their own CSS as well. Feedburner is a free and easy way to add a more "professional" look to your feed, but there is little that you can do to customize it beyond their provided options.

    Ultimately, there's really no need for it.
