I've updated the GUIBuilder HOWTO to version 0.8, and got the RSS feed working.

New Features (Changes since last version):

       * "Dialogs" are now working.  You do not have to understand
         continiuations now to use guibuilder.  This should make it
         much easier to get all the way to the end.
       * The component archetecture is now usable because of a bugfix in
         guibuilder by Mike Burns.  Thanks Mike.
       * Continuations section has been cleaned up a bit -- Still
needs more work
       * Most of the broken links should be fixed now.
       * RSS feed links fixed.  No wonder no one was using my rss feed.

Still has the these old features:
       * Focuses on getting frames working inside functions
       * Covers making your functions actually returning values
       * Includes my continuation trick for returning values
       * Covers the guibuilder component archetecture

Future work will hopefully include:
       * My continuation trick needs to be explained better
       * Flesh out component architecture more
       * Ephasize "style" in the eirlier sections, and how
         most frames should be non-deterministic functions
         (i.e. have no side effects).

Undesireable features:
       * Still done in composer instead of texmacs.  (incosistant
         layouts, and possibly more broken links)
       * Continuations section needs to be cleaned up more.

With all these updates look for a new version of RSS Syndicator soon!
