FYI about CC Machine Readable Code

When you use the CC License Chooser, you get the embed code that will make the license on your webpage machine readable. This means that search engines, software products, and other technologies can more accurately index and find your CC licensed material(s). Plus, the code includes the CC image logo(s) and a link to the license deed that you have chosen.
