I assume you're referring to RSS or ATOM when you say "XML data feeds?"
Making this assumption, most feed readers I know of can handle both RSS
and ATOM. You just need to make sure you're providing the feed in the
proper format for the readers that will be used to consume your feeds.
Is there anything special I need to know about providing xml data feeds
with rails as far as user agents, or browser specific information is
concerned? Will one data feed differ from another in any way?
Also there is a way in some browsers (at least Safari) where you can
place a meta tag in the head section that will display the RSS button
in the address bar. At least that's how I think that feature works.
Here is an example form the Apple start page:
