Antipixel | Buttons Redux: Tweakability - post/discussion on altering the look of the ubiquitous "xml.gif" button, prompted by his posting of a nice collection of custom button designs.

I've currently decided on using a text-only css-powered version, labelled 'RSS' instead of 'XML'. Recognisable enough, methinks. Scroll down to see it...

Update: here's the source code:
<a href="/rss.xml" style="background-color:#f60; border:2px outset #ffc8a4; color:white; text-decoration:none; font:bold 10px sans-serif; padding:0px 3px 0px 5px; letter-spacing:1;">RSS</a>

As long as the feed is linked as an alternate version, I'm happy

It's clearer and more accurate.
Sites that don't use the tag often offer an RSS text link. Having both terms in play is confusing.
