with preview release 1.0, firefox has a neat feature where sites with RSS feeds can be turned into a live bookmark via a small icon in the lower right hand corner of the browser window. i thought it might be cool if Zophar's Domain was compatible with this (for an example, visit slashdot, and you'll see a small orange RSS logo appear).

looking at the source of BBC.co.uk, i saw this HTML, which seems to activate the feature:

<code>&lt; link href = "http://news.bbc.co.uk/rss/newsonline_world_edition/front_page/rss091.xml" rel = "alternate" type = "application/rss+xml" title = "rss" /&gt;</code>

i'm guessing it might work if this was added to the ZD front page:

<code>&lt; link href = "http://www.zophar.net/zdf.php" rel = "alternate" type = "application/rss+xml" title = "rss" /&gt;</code>

Added to my "To-Do" list.

I can't guarantee it'll happen, but, for now, if you go to "Manage Bookmarks", you can add http://www.zophar.net/zdf.php as a dynamic bookmark by yourself.

Under Bookmarks -> "Manage Bookmarks", choose
File ->"New Live Bookmark"

Name it whatever you want, and set the feed value to:
