auto-discover RSS feed

Apparently all that is necessary for an RSS feed reader to auto-discover an
RSS feed associated with a page received and rendered by the browser is to
include the following on the page :

<head runat="server">
<title>Untitl ed Page</title>
<link rel="alternate" type="applicati on/rss+xml" title="RSS Feed Test"
href="http://localhost/rss/rssfeedtest.rss " />
</head>

However, this is not working for me (the page is returned , but the feed is
not auto-discovered by a feed reader which discovers feeds on other page
just fine).

Does http://localhost/rss/rssfeedtest.rss have to pass RSS validation for it
to be discovered ?

http://validator.w3.org/feed/check.cgi

That doesn't seem to make sense ...

What else could be going wrong ?

I may be mistaken but I think this is only supported by IE7 at this time.
Perhaps other browsers too but it would be rare for other "readers" to
support this until their next revision cycles.

FireFox 1.5 auto-discovers availability of RSS feeds ... and if you click
the discovered icon it then adds the currently available feeds from that
provider as a drop-down list on the toolbar.

Active Web Reader also auto-discovers.

Hi. This post follows "does python have useless destructors". I'm not an expert, so I hope what I will write is meaningfull and clear. Actually in Python there is no possibility to write code that follows C++ RAII pattern. Of course Python objects are not statics like in C++, but in C++ the auto_ptr class is used for enforcing this pattern for dynamical

I'm changing the layout of my site. Instead of using tables, I will use DIVs. It's working fine, except for 1 thing: In IE6 some DIVs are not the correct width.

I'm using the following in a page that I'm testing in Mozilla: p.actionLinkBlock {border: 1px #000000 dashed; padding: 0.2cm; width: auto} But the dashed border is extending to the right-edge of the screen. I want it to only extend as far as it needs to to nicely contain the content within (a couple of links). Is width: auto the wrong property to do this? Is Mozilla rendering the style wrong?

Hi, I am running into a problem of mixing UICulture = auto and allowing users to select culture using a dropdown list. I am detecting a querystring, "setlang", and when found, setting the CurrentUICulture to what's specified in the querystring. Since I want to allow UICulture auto detecting, I add UICulture = "auto" to page directive on each page.

at work they decided to center divs thus: body {text-align:center} #content {width: 612px; text-align:left; margin: 0 auto 0 auto; } this works fine in IE & FF, EXCEPT in FF it doesn't work if I change 'auto' to 0 for left and right margin values; I have to leave those at 'auto'.. so I would like to know what exactly means 'auto' -- what value it represents exactly (and does it apply for all elements/values you might apply 'auto' to?)

I currently get asked about my usage of "auto". What is it for? The keyword is clearly superflous here. In contrast to the huge majority of C/C++ developers I write definitions very explicitly like that: int main(char argc, char *argv, char *env) { try { auto Exception mainException(1); mainException.setErrNo(42);

Hi, I've encountered a strange problem with Firefox which I don't have any idea how to resolve. To the point: I've <divelement with a style "height: auto" and I want to retrieve this value ("auto") in JavaScript - however instead of getting "auto" value, I get calculated height. In IE and Opera it simply returns "auto". Any ideas how to check in Firefox if element height was set to "auto" ? I'll be grateful for any help.

Let's talk about the concept of autonomous AI software engineers and no-code agents. These AIs are designed to manage the entire lifecycle of a software development project—planning, coding, testing, and deployment—without human intervention. Imagine an AI that can take a project description, break it down, write the code, debug it, and then launch it, all on its own.... Now, this would greatly impact the work of software developers.
