Add RSS icon to feed link in Blogspot footer

I've seen many complaints that Blogger does not offer user the possibility to follow comments in a post, that user has commented. Well, it kind of does, via RSS feed, but this is often not noticed. When viewing a post, there's a feed link in page footer, but it is in small text not easily recognized. My tip to make it more visible is to add RSS icon to the link.

This hack also adds RSS icon to other pages' feed links in footer, for example in front page the link to the blog posts' feed.

Here's how you can do it: Open template html, select Expand Widget Templates. Search for line:

     <a class='feed-link' expr:href='data:f.url' expr:type='data:f.mimeType' target='_blank'><> (<data:f.feedType/>)</a>

Change to:

     <a class='feed-link' expr:href='data:f.url' expr:type='data:f.mimeType' target='_blank'><img src=''/> <> (<data:f.feedType/>)</a>
