Last night I somehow made the following XML in to a live bookmark in Firefox. However I'm not sure what I have to do to put this on my site for others to EASILY click and somehow make in to a livebookmark?

All you need is the following HTML in the <head> section of any page on which you want to offer the live bookmarks feed.

<link rel='alternate' type='application/rss+xml' title='Some Title' href='/path/to/feed.xml' />

This will make Firefox display the orange "Live Bookmark" icon in the bottom right hand corner - you might want to produce some on page content to draw attention to it.

Opera will display a small blue "RSS" glyph in the address bar, but again, it's not that obvious to a user that's not expecting it.
