This works great in Thunderbird 1.5 (which has RSS support), with one annoyance: the titles all have <b> and </b> markers in them for bold styling.

I don't know whether or not the RSS standard(s) permit this (ie, whether the bug is on the feed side or the reader side) but it's really annoying... any way to hack this out?

To answer my own question: if you make a feed with "Show forum name:" set to "no", you can avoid this (though you no longer get the forum name, of course)

I've added the forum RSS feed to Feedburner, which puts it in an easier to read format for various RSS readers and also adds it to the growing worldwide list of RSS feeds.

RSS feeds are a convenient way to stay updated on news, blogs and forum posts without having to visit each site. The RSS feed aggregator goes out and gathers the info for you automatically. Click here to read an explanation of RSS.

(Steven, I've also removed the "bold" styling markers so you can turn the forum names back on in your feed)
