Feed Auto-Discovery

I have often wondered why some web pages with RSS feeds did not trigger the auto-discovery tool in Firefox, but hadn't gotten around to figuring out why. Pete Freitag explains how enable auto-discovery by adding a single HTML tag to your web pages. For those of you who know HTML, add a link tag in the head that identifies the feed. E.g.,
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" title="RSS Feed for petefreitag.com" href="/rss/" />
You would, of course, change the title and href to reflect your feed. If using Atom, change the type to "application/atom+xml." [from blogwithoutalibrary]
