I've written up a very simple special markup recipe and uploaded it in the
form of onlinestatus.php, now available at


This recipe enables a (:onlinestatus:) markup which has two arguments: svc
(service) and id (identification).  It currently allows yim (Yahoo!), aol,
and skype in the 'svc' argument. So if you were YIM user dairyman88, you'd
use this markup:

(:onlinestatus svc=yim id=dairyman88:)

There are several other services, obviously, and anyone can feel free to add
them to this recipe.
