Thanks for the pointer. However, I'm still stuck:

I'm not getting this to work. First, I removed the "<at>" stuff which I
don't understand anyway, hope this didn't destroy anything. Second, I am
using Auth User, which probably will make things more complicated.
Finally, I am actually receiving RSS pages in my RSS reader - but they
all show only the password prompt. In my impression, it is not
sufficient to provide a password to the rss page - actually the
&authpw=xxx stuff should be applied to all the *content pages* which are
supposed to be transmitted via the RSS feed!
Could anybody help me further with this?
