I noticed that the EOS RebelXT ships with the EF-S 18-55 lens kit.

In looking at a review of the EF-S17-85 (see below) it says that it is only compatible with the 20D. Is the S designation separate from this compatability issue?

Below is a fragment from http://www.dpreview.com/news/0408/04..._efs_flash.asp

Amstelveen, The Netherlands, 20 August, 2004. Canon, a leader in photographic and imaging technology, today announces the EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM and EF-S 10-22mm f/3.5-4.5 USM wide-angle EF-S zoom lenses. Targeted at advanced digital photographers, both lenses are designed to work exclusively with Canon's EOS 20D and EOS 300D digital SLR cameras. The focal length ranges of the respective lenses translates to 27-136mm and 16-35mm respectively in 35mm film format – a spread carefully chosen by Canon to reflect the needs of its rapidly growing base of advanced D-SLR photographers

EF-S lenses work on the 300D, 350D, and 20D only.

...and "Rebel XT" is another name for the 350D, so yes, the Rebel XT is compatible with all the EF-S lenses.
