Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Here a Pod, There a Pod

iTunes 4.9 is out, with its previously-announced support for podcasts. The podcast directory at the iTunes Music Store is very extensive, and makes subscribing to a podcast the same one-click experience that iTMS users are accustomed to for purchasing music.

My favourite radio station in the whole world was recently featured in the New York Times Magazine. But, alas, KCRW’s podcast are all talk, talk, talk. (What’s with that? Copyright issues?) Still they do have a groovy live MP3 stream, which iTunes supports quite nicely.


Apple has published the specification for its iTunes extensions to the RSS 2.0 format used by podcasters. If you submit your podcast feed for inclusion in the iTMS podcast directory, you’re supposed to use these extensions to embed the podcast metadata, which will be displayed by the Music Store.
