This is a problem with the way Yahoo! have set up this page. The best way for a web site to facilitate auto-discovery is to put some hidden markers in a web page that say "hey, we've got some RSS feeds associated with this page, here are the URL's." Yahoo! haven't done this.

To try to remedy situations like this, Awasu also scans the page looking for links that *might* be RSS feeds. Unfortunately, Yahoo! have created feed URL's that don't look anything like typical RSS feeds which is why Awasu is not finding them.

The best thing to do is to contact Yahoo! and ask them why they're not doing things properly and using <LINK> tags :-) While you're there, you might also want to ask them why they're putting out web pages that don't display properly in Firefox :roll:
