    Excellent tutorial. I have something to add!

    I have a couple suggestions to make your link look even nicer, like this:

    < img src=http://uvumi.com/vanwampler/avatar/mini" alt="This Place We're In on Uvumi.com"/ > < a href="http:// uvumi.com/vanwampler/songs/2774" >Van Wampler - This Place We're In< /a >

    This Place We're In on Uvumi.com Van Wampler - This Place We're In

    Notice that I removed the link from the avatar image and put it only on the title of the song. This is to prevent the image from becoming a link so that the underline doesn't show up on the space between the picture and the song title (just a small detail), and also note that there is a space between the img tag and the A tag around the song title. Additionally, I used a direct link to the artist's mini avatar (http://uvumi.com/vanwampler/avatar/mini) which is actually a yet-unpublished feature we built in. This will ensure that you'll always get the artist's current avatar even when they change it.

      And if you want even more formatting options, experiment with style attributes in your HTML. We support limited CSS like padding and float!

      Anyway, it's really cool that you wrote this tutorial up for people, I think it is a great contribution to the community!

      Since Uvumi added the song image permalink, this whole tutorial was greatly simplified, and Marshall's remarks, while still correct, are not really needed any more. Just use the permalink.
