Cool MSN Search Features (1 regular, 1 in Alpha)

MSN Search is making it's "Move". They offer a branded free site search option (which is no biggie, it just adds the standard "site:xxx.com" directive ), and also, if you've noticed at the very bottom of a search results page, there is a familiar
"RSS" icon. Lordy, Lordy! MSN search results as RSS! Now that's an interesting idea, even if its in Alpha and could be changed or taken down at any time...

So here are two samples, one to search this UnBlog, and the other for any set of search terms you want, returned as RSS, all courtesy of MSN Search.
Each one is pre-filled with some sample entry that will return results. Just view source on this page to get the code.

Also, please note the disclaimer in the Returned RSS:

"These XML results may not be used, reproduced or transmitted in any manner or for any purpose other than rendering MSN Search results within an RSS aggregator for your personal, non-commercial use. Any other use of these results requires express written permission from Microsoft Corporation. By accessing this web page or using these results in any manner whatsoever, you agree to be bound by the foregoing restrictions."

In other words, don't use this page as your "personal RSS search engine". Its only here to share the code.
