Look at the XML code at the URL of the include. What matters is the link of the button. For the rest you can put whatever you want. Beware of user experience though. A unified button has the advantage of beeing easily understandable by everyone.

The include element not only includes a bookmark button. It also includes a link to Google Analytics. Should this be documented?

We gather statistics about audience on all our services and Website. This is for that too. There's no real need to document it since it's not require (nor possible as is) to include it in your own implementation.

Even if the bookmark itself can't have an image, can the bookmark's button just be an image? I want to add a small icon-only button to my Manialink, since a full-size button would be too big for the area I have set aside for the button.

Wouldn't it be smart to have a bookmark image specifically for these buttons? A star could mean a number of things, but an open book with a bookmark in it would have a clear purpose.

EDIT: Actually, a heart icon would work too, since "bookmarks" and "favorites" are synonyms in this context.

IE, FF, Chrome and Opera (and this is a non-exhaustive list) are using a star for bookmarks/favorites, I think it's a good enough reason for choosing a star too ^_^

I guess that's fine then, but I'm going to use StateFavourite instead for my button.

Looking at the link, I can't figure out what the 42=(stuff) part is for. What is that? Also, my bookmark keeps displaying as a raw Manialink in the bookmarks menu, instead of the name I gave it. I'd like to fix that.
