What does this tag mean?

Post by makarakao » Wed Dec 07, 2005 7:41 pm

I have come across many websites and I've seen a tag, but I don't know exactly what it is used for, may be rss feed or anything else. I don't know for sure.

Code: Select all

<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="TIPinAsia News" href="/TH/rss-news.php" />
Could someone help explain to me the way it works and how to use it? And also the url of this tutorial if any.
And sorry if I post in the wrong place, but I don't know where to post it.

Thanks in advance.

its a link tag for the RSS feed, as many browsers have support for detecting such feeds. For instance in Firefox i see the icon showing that the feed is present
