    ditto that.

    I've seen some code for including the iframe, but not the more flexible XFBML version.

    Anyone?

    Here's a WordPress widget that does just uses the new Facebook Like button:

    Facebook Like WordPress Plugin v1.0

    Feedbacks appreciated on this blog post while waiting for WordPress to approve it and move it to the directory.

    (the blog actually uses it so you can test the plugin live before installing)

    bottomlessinc, your plugin creates an entire page for every article someone likes on my site - whats up with that? any way to disable it?

    You mean a Facebook page?
    That's what Facebook's Like button is supposed to do: "mirror" your own page on Facebook itself.
    But you see this page only because you own it and have the admin rights to it. And as admin from this Facebook page you can list everybody who liked your page and send them updates directly to their Facebook stream.
    Otherwise all other users will be redirected directly to your blog page, no Facebook "ghost" page in the middle.
