Voting in the Blogosphere

As you may see, I have amended my theme to offer you blogosphere voting buttons. How did I do this. With help from Rich Burridge I amended my themes _day template file.


<!---- This is the digg example ---->

<a href="http://digg.com/submit?phase=3&url=$absBaseURL$entry.permaLink;title=$entry.title"
  rel="external" title="Submit it to Digg">

<!-- I am using Rich Burridge's Icons -->

  <img src="http://blogs.sun.com/richb/resource/bookmarkIcon-digg.png"
      width="16" height="14" alt="" border="0"/>
  </a> &nbsp;
 

The Border="0" is quite important, as in my original implementation I did not treat the four icons equally. This controls if there is a border around the picture, which since I have a white background and white icons, looks better than the active link colour border, which is as you can see orange.

I wonder if I should convert the theme to my web space greens.
