Applesurf has announced a new service that allows users to add updated headline news content to their Web site. By simple copying and pasting one line of HTML code, users can pick from a series of computer focused headlines to automatically appear on their site. According to Applesurf:

I've added a new service for Applesurf, and the other web sites in

>Free Headlines For Your Web Site
Just insert one simple line of HTML code, and you can get updated news headlines on your very own web site, absolutely free. Choose from Apple, Wintel, Internet, or Linux news, or news from Singapore too.

How it works: The single line of HTML code is actually a Javascript command, that points to a piece of javascript code on my site. This javascript code bascially uses document.write() to print out a list of the latest headlines and links from the database.

So long as the user turns on Javascript in her browser, the browser will automatically go to Applesurf to fetch and display the headlines. I've tested this on Internet Explorer, Netscape, and iCab, and they all worked fine.

The service is available for free. You can find more information at the MyAppleMenu Web site.
