How do I get the RSS button to illuminate in IE7 when my page contains a
link to an RSS feed?

I have a link:

<a href="http://www.---.com/rss/rss.xml ">RSS Feed</a>

yet the IE7 browser doesn't illuminate the RSS Feed found on this page

Why not?!

Depending on your RSS type, you need to link in your HTML head;



<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" href="/myfeed.atom"  
title="description of my feed" />


<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" href="/myfeed.rss"
title="feed me baby" />

You need a <link> tag in the document <head>, like so:

<link rel=3D"alternate" type=3D"application/rss+xml" href=3D"/rss/rss.xm=
l"  =

title=3D"My Feed" />
