Easy Content Syndication

If you want to include a favorite channel on your home page, here's a Frontier macro that does it for you:
on myUserLandChannel (id) local (server = "nirvana.userland.com", port = 80) local (path = "/myUserLand/staticRendering/service" + string.padwithzeros (id, 5) + ".html") return (string.httpResultSplit (tcp.httpClient (server:server, port:port, path:path)))
Put this macro in user.html.macros and call it from your web pages as follows:
This will place channel 8 in your page.
Now you can do content syndication just like Alta Vista and ZDNet!
PS: No reason you couldn't do this in Perl, Java, Python or Tcl.
