Supporting the Firefox RSS icon

If you use Firefox, you know that some sites have a little RSS icon at the bottom. Click it, and you can choose to save their RSS feed as a ‘live bookmark.’

It’s a cool feature, and just about the only reason that I pop open Firefox nowadays (alas, I have defected back to Safari).

But I lost it on my site,, when I updated the interface a few months ago. It was only a couple of days ago that I found out how to get it back.

Put the following code in the HEAD section of your HTML and you’re laughing. (And, incidentally, Firefox users have a very easy way to suck down your feed.)

PS: ignore the paragraph HTML markup above the link … it’s WordPress trying to do the right thing (and unfortunately failing miserably) ….
