The actual problem is that I had "View->Message Body As->Plain Text" switched
on, in order to work around bug #284246

please see bug #284246


This is still a problem, as the user is not informed that the RSS feed will not
display in "plain text" mode.

if this is the same issue as bug 284247 (for Firefox), it should already be
fixed on the trunk.

This is not the same bug as bug 284247.

I will re-write the bug below, I apologise for the confusion:

If you view an RSS feed and have View->Message Body As->Plain Text.  The RSS
feed displays a blank window

Steps to re-produce
1. Select an RSS feed item.
2. Select View->Message Body As->Plain Text

Actual Results.

The RSS feed is not visible, the message window is blank

Expected Results.

1) The user should be warned that they will not be able to see the message in
"Plain Text" mode. If "plain text" mode is selected,or is already switched on
while viewing an RSS feed.


2) The  View->Message Body As->Plain Text menu should be disabled wne viewing
RSS feeds and the message window should default to HTML view.
