RSS Buttons

Older: or


Above you can see two old and one new RSS site feed buttons.

In any case I prefer the new button because it’s a) not so technical and b) not so technically ambiguous (after all, while RSS may be XML, XML isn’t just RSS). And now let’s wait and see what happens when XHTML 2 with “inline RSS” functionality (the new role attribute with e.g. rss:title) will be released...
