Adding Google Talk Online Status

I wanted to add a tutorial on my blog for instructions on listing your Online Status For Google Talk.

Jon Burrows the guy who runs the server that makes this possible has five great layouts to choose from but terrible instructions on how to do it so here goes.

GOOGLE TALK INSTRUCTIONS:
  1. Add gtalkonlinestatus@googlemail.com as a Friend in Google Talk
  2. Send the Code ENCSTRING as an instant message to gtalkonlinestatus@googlemail.com
  3. In Your HTML code type <img src="
  4. Copy and Paste the code from the ENCSTRING Reply for the image number you want to use. Choose Your Image File # At His Site.
  5. Following The Pasted Filename type "> to close the HTML code
  6. Your resulting line in your html should look something similar to this

Thanks, I am glad you made those instructions so much simpler for us non-technical types, HUH ? Am I just especially slow about this stuff or what?
