Currently Being ModeratedJan 11, 2011 11:00 PM (in response to MacUnix)This is the work around I used because I tried the one that suggested using Google Reader and it didn't work the way I wanted. Here is how I added/bookmarked Craigslist RSS feeds in Safari.
1)Do your search on craigslist for whatever it is you're looking for. In my case I entered a search for composer in Gigs.
2)Scroll down to the bottom of the page where the little *yellow RSS icon* is for craigslist.
3)Right click on the icon and choose *Download Linked File As…*
4)Now name the file whatever you want it to be. In my case I was looking for "composer" in Los Angeles as well as various other cities so I named the first one Los Angeles.
5)Go to where you store downloaded files, find the file, right click on it and select *Open With Safari*.
6)So now Safari is going to open the file and you'll see it displayed as a normal RSS feed. All you have you to do next is Bookmark it.
Now the folder I've made in my Safari Bookmark Toolbar displays the number of feeds from all the different craigslist cities I've added RSS feeds from. Yay!Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.6.6)

This is Apple's problem and it has been for quite some time. Craiglist's "RSS" feed validates (it's actually RDF). There's not a single thing wrong with it.
If you try to parse a valid Craigslist using Apple's XML API it will blow up. This is a low level issue that affects *all* Apple products and all Apple developers.
