I don’t have an MT weblog (‘cause I’m “powered by Blogger”), but even I understand the principles behind trackback.

It seems that Dave’s been having trouble, but I don’t see what there is to get (although admittedly, this is after I read a very good explanation), I have a short html form for when I want to send a trackback from my Blogger blog, which takes the TB URL (which is the trackback:ping=”xx” bit of the embedded RDF snippet), then enter my entry title and an excerpt and hit submit. It takes about a minute, which is probably about 59 seconds longer than a native MT user, but it works.

Dave may also like to know that both Sam Ruby and Mark Pilgrim have the embedded RDF in their weblog posts, uncommented and commented respectively, I suspect the commented version is more correct, but I could easily be wrong.
