      The proposal [1] to support the common feed icon [2] has passed 5-0,
      with RSS Advisory Board members Meg Hourihan, Jenny Levine, Eric Lunt,
      Randy Charles Morin and myself voting in favor.

      In an effort to make the concept of syndication easier for mainstream
      users, Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera will all identify
      RSS and Atom feeds with the same icon:

      http://www.rssboard.org/images/syndicated-feed-icon.gif

      The board has adopted the symbol on this site and encourages its use
      on web sites, browsers, and syndication software.

      Additionally, the board encourages web publishers to use the icon on
      any feed, regardless of whether it employs Atom [3] or the two formats
      that call themselves RSS: RDF Site Summary [4] and Really Simple
      Syndication [5].

      If you've added the icon to a site published with Movable Type,
      WordPress or another weblog publishing system, your tips on
      implementing the icon are welcomed on the RSS-Public [6] mailing list.
