    BBC Weather and icons

    Hi All,

    I am looking to use the BBC's weather feed (http://newsrss.bbc.co.uk/weather/for...xt3DaysRSS.xml) however I am not sure how to get it working with icons.

    I want it to look like the Long Term Forecast at the following website http://www.theweathernetwork.com/weather/UKXX0085

    Can anyone please explain how I would go about doing this?

    Cheers

    They have the Image url in the xml
    Code:
    <image>
    	<title>BBC - Weather Centre - Forecast for London, United Kingdom</title>
      <link>http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/forecast/8</link>
      <url>http://news.bbc.co.uk/weather/img/symbols/57x57/1.gif</url>
    
    </image>

    image->url
