OK, I'm trying for the first time to set up a podcast on a website. I have the podcast itself all set up properly (validated) and it's on iTunes and everything. The question I have is how to set it up to work with RSS readers. If you manually type in the address manually in an RSS reader it comes up fine, but how do I make the little RSS symbol show up in the address bar of web browsers? So if your web browser has a built in rss/xml reader it can see it automatically when they visit the site.

EX: http://www.dcresource.com/

in Firefox and Safari this site displays a RSS icon in the address bar to the right of the url.

my site: http://www.travelqueen.com

my podcast: http://www.travelqueen.com/podcasts/tqpodcasts.xml

Can anybody help with this?

It also doesn't show the mp3 files when I do go to the xml file manually in the Sage RSS plugin in Firefox but it does in Safari. Just the text. Anybody know why?

I think it's the LINK element that makes browsers show the icon.
<link rel="alternate" type="application/rss+xml" href="...">
