I'm not really sure how to explain what I'm trying to ask, but I'll try.

With Opera, the "Navigation" toolbar shows up in the browser, and Firefox shows the "Active Bookmark" icon, showing the site offers an RSS feed when you include:

<link rel="alternate" title="My RSS feed" href="http://www.example.com/rss.xml" type="application/rss+xml">

Is it possible to offer 2 alternate RSS feeds on the same page, and have it work properly with these features? I tried it myself, but it only shows access to the first one listed. I am just doing it incorrectly, or is this not how it works?

Sure. Here's what I'm using on my sites that offer multiple feeds:

<link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" title="Atom" href="http://example.com/atom.xml" />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 1.0" href="http://example.com/index.rdf" />
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS 2.0" href="http://example.com/index.xml" />
