RSS, XML and orange buttons

This is so true, why when you click on the funky orange XML/RSS icon does your browser display gibberish! RSS should be a MIME type or something similar so that when the user clicks on the subscribe button the RSS reader automatically adds the feed. Now some readers are starting to do this, Pluck for one, but it is not consistent. For the average user subscribing to an RSS feed can be a difficult thing.

Then there is the growing backlash which will continue until it is easy for people to subscribe to RSS feeds. Maybe we will need to wait for Microsoft to save us?
