RSS Autodiscovery

I needed to check my notes on RSS autodiscovery; I wrote about it in passing in my article on Venus, and on returning found this article by Pete Freitag. The key idiom is to add a <link> tag in the <head> section of your html page. Here are more notes …

An example,

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" 
  title="${RSS feed title}"  href="${URL}" />

If the feed is an atom feed then the type should be “application/atom+xml” & RDF is “application/rdf+xml.”.
