How to add an AddThis widget in Blogger (pre-Beta)

To add an ‘AddThis‘ bookmark widget (like at the end of this post) to a pre-Beta Blogger template like Minima, I hacked the code like so:

<!– AddThis Bookmark Button BEGIN –>
<script type=”text/javascript”>
addthis_url = “<$BlogItemPermalinkUrl$>”;
addthis_title = “FlutePlayer.net: <$BlogItemTitle$>”;
addthis_pub = ‘fluteplayer’;
</script><script type=”text/javascript” src=”http://s7.addthis.com/js/addthis_widget.php?v=12″ ></script>
<!– AddThis Bookmark Button END –>

Note: I’ve noticed that in Firefox, the ‘Favorites’ option puts the bookmark in the left sidebar (both on my Mac and a PC running Ubuntu). It also doesn’t work at all in Safari. 😐
Does it work in IE?

Fortunately, the Digg, delicious and other options all seem to work fine with the widget, so I’m thinking this may be a temporary bug that ‘AddThis’ will fix. At least I hope so …
