Getting the little RSS Orange Badge to show up in the Status Bar on Firefox 1.0
I run dasBlog as you likely have noticed. I also am a FireFox fan fo rmy personal browser, and there's a nice new RSS feature in FireFox 1.0PR. It shows the RSS Orange badge in the status bar, and when you click on it, you can subscribe to a "smart bookmark" that will appear as a folder with each RSS item as an item. Very slick, and makes RSS reading easy for someone like my Mom.
Additionally it's nice for a browser to FIND the RSS/Atom feed rather than hunting for the badge on the web page.
The way you let Mozilla know about these features is with the <link> tag like this. I added these lines to my dasBlog homeTemplate.blogtemplate file. You should too.
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS" href="http://...">
<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Atom" href="http://...">
