Kevin Hinde, head of technical development for BBC News Interactive, writes to tell me about the BBC's new RSS feeds. He says the site now has feeds for every news index, and sports will be following soon.
I've made a bookmarklet that gives you the RSS feed for a particular page or section front on the BBC News Web site. If you're at the Business | Your Money page, for instance, clicking the bookmarklet will take you to the Business | Your Money RSS feed. I was able to pull this off because the BBC uses standardized URLs for its feeds and its pages.
I opted to make a bookmarklet instead of listing the feeds because some sections, such as 2003 summer music festivals, aren't necessarily permanent, and I'm sure new sections (and, hence, feeds) will be added with some frequency.
The bookmarklet works like any other -- just drag it to your bookmark list and click it at your leisure. Here it is:
I've tested it only on MozillaFirebird for Linux. Bug fixes welcome.
