Why? That's more difficult than what I mentioned, which does all that
for you and saves you the effort of mucking with HTTP requests.

If you really really want to do that, what you're looking to learn about
is XMLHttpRequest, possibly via OpenLayers.loadURL, but your problem
isn't about GeoRSS, it's about loading remote data. (We try to wrap
these things up so that you don't have to worry about it.)
