One way to tell Web browsers that your Web pages have Atom Feed files is to add a "link" tag in the header section of your Web pages. The "link" tag defines a "link" element with 4 attributes:

  • rel="alternate" - Defines the relation of this Web page and the Atom feed file.
  • type="application/atom+xml" - Defines the MIME type of the Atom feed file.
  • href="urlOfAtomFeedFile" - Defines the location of the Atom feed file.
  • title="titleOfTheFeed" - Defines the title of the Atom feed file.

The following Web page contains a "link" tag good example that associate an Atom feed to this page:

<html><head>
 <title>Webmaster FYI Center</title>
 <link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" 
  href="atom.xml" title="Atom feed for FAQ pages">
</head><body>
<p>Definitions of Webmaster on the Web:</p>
<li>The person responsible for maintaining and 
    updating a Web site.</li>
<li>The administrator, maintainer and/or creator 
    of a web site.<li>
<li>The person who lays out the information trees, 
    designs the look, codes HTML pages, handles editing 
    and additions and checks that links are intact.</li>
<li>...</li>
</ul>
</body></html>
