JavaScript Help Please - Adding an RSS Feed

I am trying to add an RSS feed to Storyline.  Here is my RSS javascript:

<!-- start feedwind code -->

<!--
rssmikle_url="http://topics.nytimes.com/top/news/business/companies/fao_schwarz_inc/index.html?rss=1";
rssmikle_frame_width="200";
rssmikle_frame_height="275";
rssmikle_target="_blank";
rssmikle_font="Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif";
rssmikle_font_size="12";
rssmikle_border="on";
rssmikle_css_url="";
autoscroll="off";
rssmikle_title="on";
rssmikle_title_bgcolor="#9ACD32";
rssmikle_title_color="#FFFFFF";
rssmikle_title_bgimage="http://";
rssmikle_item_bgcolor="#FFFFFF";
rssmikle_item_bgimage="http://";
rssmikle_item_title_length="55";
rssmikle_item_title_color="#666666";
rssmikle_item_border_bottom="on";
rssmikle_item_description="on";
rssmikle_item_description_length="150";
rssmikle_item_description_color="#666666";
rssmikle_item_date="off";
rssmikle_item_description_tag="off";
rssmikle_item_podcast="off";
//-->
</script>
src="http://widget.feed.mikle.com/js/rssmikle.js"></script>
<div style="font-size:10px; text-align:right;">
<a href="http://feed.mikle.com/" target="_blank" style="color:#CCCCCC;">RSS widget</a>
var p = GetPlayer();
p.SetVar("RSS1");
<!--Please display the above link in your web page according to Terms of Service.-->
</div>
<!-- end feedwind code -->

Admittedly, I am a total Javascript newbie so I don't know what I don't know.  Attached is my .story file.  In looking at my file again, I can see that referenced my own text variable in Storyline, but it is not triggering anything within the script itself...I think.

Thanks to you (and anyone else) who can help!

Hi Jonathan

I don't think this will work as you cannot bring in web content this way, I would do it another way, use a site to convert your RSS feed

Then use the embed code to bring it in.

http://www.test.elearninglaboratory.co.uk/RSS/story.html

I bused this site https://www.rssinclude.com

To create my embed code

I then inserted a video from website and pasted the embed code (I chose the iframe version)

This can be positioned better than I have but it works

Hope this helps
