I've been seeing the nice orange RSS icons everywhere, and wanted one to replace the plain text TypePad uses by default. With a little Googling, I found They've done a really nice job packaging this up, with multiple sizes of the icons and instructions on how to change the color if orange doesn't do it for you.

For anyone on TypePad, here's the code I used to get the icon to appear with no border and to pick up the subhead style for the word "Subscribe". Adjust icon dimensions based on the one you end up using.

<div class="module-syndicate module">
<h2 class="module-header" style="margin-bottom: 15px"><a href="http://[yourblog]/index.rdf"><img src="[youriconpath]" border="0" height="32" width="32" style="border: 0px"> Subscribe</a>

Now I need to stop playing with my blogs and bill some hours! ;-)

Infoworld has a nice quick article called "What users hate most about Web sites."

Of course to read the article, you have to get past the animated banner ad at the top, animated inset ad on the article, and pop-up it will attempt to open—items number 1 and 4 on the most hated list. As irritating as these regular ads are, I've accepted them as a fact of life on browsing free sites, though I greatly prefer Google's context-sensitive ad words as they've actually been known to be things I'm interested in.
