too clever by half

I wasted five minutes this morning trying to get the “RSS feed”:http://blogs.guardian.co.uk/election2005/atom.xml from the _Guardian’s_ election blog working in Opera. The icon was there, but nothing I tried seemed to subscribe me. I dragged, I dropped, I clicked and control-keyed. Nothing. In despair, I turned to the help system. It turned out to be too simple to believe. On any page with an RSS feed, Opera will show a little icon in the address bar, next to the address. Click on that and you are automagically subscribed to the feed of your choice. Wonderful when you know how. But who would ever have looked there in the first place?
