I'm used to A and B both, but B catches my eye the quickest since it appears in the FF address bar automatically.

I have to say B also because of Operas' address bar. I tend to see larger versions (32X32 ?) in alot of places that like to place emphasis on their RSS feeds.

Feedburner mentions that icon being a standard, but they just point to a site called feedicons.com where after some digging leads to finding out it's a Mozilla established standard.

I'd say B as well. I see loads of that sign, it's like it has become synonimous with 'RSS'

I'm jumping on the B bandwagon with everyone else here. I used to see A a lot more in the past but in my opinion B is more common now.

You young bucks that just be learnin' about them internets make me laugh. Back in my day, searching the internets was done by poking holes in punchcards.

I wonder which part is the standard, the icon or just those broadcast-wave-looking things.

FF3 on Gnome just uses the wave portion.

Most definitely B. Although a mozilla standard, its use is pretty widespread and might as well be a standard for all rss feeds.

I vote B.

A is fairly generic, I mean is says XML on it, if it said RSS than it would make more sense.

I am the other ozzu ghost who voted A simply because I have seeing it more often then the waves, although waves look nice.

It used to be A in the early days of XML and RSS.
Nowadays its mostly B, and the credit of its popularity should go to firefox.

The first option is misleading; while RSS is XML, not all XML is RSS.

I was thinking the same thing Daemonguy.
The same way that HTML is XML, but not all XML is HTML.

Both RSS & HTML are concrete implementations of XML.

I see it like that aswell ... And the second option (B) looks better imo ...

//I realize this is way off topic, but continuing on our "english" thread, shouldn't this topic title be "Which image is better recognized for RSS" ... ? I am just asking because I am unsure ...

Yes.

"Which" is used to choose one of a group while "what" is independent and stand-alone.
