It looks like the "MT Enclosures" plug in does what I'm looking for?
Luckily this plugin appears to already be installed in our

I hope I've implemented it correctly. If I'm reading this right, all
you do is edit the rss 2.0 template for the blog that you want to feed
enclosures from, and insert <$MTEntryEnclosures$> inside the Item
element. It doesn't say anything about placement of this tag in the
Item element, but I'll play with that later if I can this to work at
What I don't know yet is what will happen at the other end, when I
view this article in the RSS feed? I'll give this a shot and see what
