The orange icon...

MSFT Team RSS Blog: The choice of what icon to use is challenging because it should be universally symbolic, but today there is no single icon for that represents feed.  Instead there’s a variety of mostly orange rectangles with the words “XML”, “RSS”, “ATOM”, “FEED”, or “Subscribe.”

Randy: Microsoft is looking for help to determine what icon they should use in IE7 to represent a feed (RSS or Atom). The icons they are considering are all images. I'm partial to something readable, like Subscribe.
