feed icons

While doing the quick hack theme for Planet Catalyst yesterday, I thought it would be amusing to find all matching icons for rss1, rss2, foaf, opml, you name it. And then someone got carried away and made a pony icon.

Anyway, we were left with an uneven number, and as we all know how much I love symmetry, I knew we would need one more.

I toyed with the idea of adding an xhtml icon, but even though I was validating the theme as I was going, lets face it, everyone's individual feeds will break xhtml compliance.

So then I realised that planetplanet will publish atom as well, so clearly adding an icon for the atom feed would sort things out.

But no. I was unable to find an icon for atom where the little orange bit lined up with the little grey bit and now I think it's worse than before. At least before, it was obviously not symmetrical, whereas now it's just hiding under this guise of symmetry.
