Hi Michael,

That was as well already my observation and I've played around with this.
As you say, if the above link-tag is included in the header of a page
it works in Konqueror. Let me bring my question to the point: How
this (RSS feed connectors) must be included in the correct way in
web pages? Is there some RFC or other specification for this?
