    HTML tutorialA choir member recently asked me how to subscribe to this blog so she could see daily posts in her feed reader dashboard.  The "subscribe to posts" button on the right doesn't work well for everyone, and even instructions acknowledge that subscribing is a weakness of the feed system.  When you visit this blog, if your browser lights up a feed icon in the toolbar, you can click it to subscribe, or you can click on the one starting this paragraph, or just click here to subscribe.  (Incidentally, the feed system is known as RSS, for "rich site summary," but it's usually called "really simple syndication."  How ironic.)
