Hello,
I am using the google FEED API
https://developers.google.com/feed/v1/devguide

I got the basic going very easy, the results are plain text though. I want to results to be hyperlinks back to blog posts

For JSON, XML, Mixed it tells you to use LINK, but it does not have a single sample on how to use it (are we supposed to instinctively know?)

Please help

Combining the 'hello world' example with a line of code found later on in the page (but using link instead of url) gives this:
<html>
  <head>
    <script type="text/javascript" src="https://www.google.com/jsapi"></script>
    <script type="text/javascript">

    google.load("feeds", "1");

    function initialize() {
      var feed = new google.feeds.Feed("http://fastpshb.appspot.com/feed/1/fastpshb");
      feed.load(function(result) {
        if (!result.error) {
          var container = document.getElementById("feed");
          for (var i = 0; i < result.feed.entries.length; i++) {
            var entry = result.feed.entries[i];
            var div = document.createElement("div");
            //div.appendChild(document.createTextNode(entry.title));
            div.innerHTML = '<p><a href="' + entry.link + '">' + entry.title + '</a></p>';
            container.appendChild(div);
          }
        }
      });
    }
    google.setOnLoadCallback(initialize);

    </script>
  </head>
  <body>
    <div id="feed"></div>
  </body>
</html>

So the commented out line was replaced by the line below it which shows the article link.
