Shannon et al,
I found one problem with that article. According to the way Word Press does things, it adds an enclosure tag with the URL to the file, the content size, and I forget what else. I don't know how to do this in the current RSS deal they have up there. If I missed it, can someone post it? I know that Jeff's Jamboree has that XML file deal that article speaks of, but he also has a script I think that does the enclosure.

Thank you Rob, I'd appreciate the file very much. And thank you too Vince for the articles. My web hosting company has WordPress, but I'm reluctant to go that route--I'd rather store them on my Web space and learn to write the tags and text.
