If you put together a project and have all of the Digikey part numbers (which 
are a pain to get if you aren't in their "search/order" mode), you can put 
together a *public* parts list.

To do this, you
1) register with Digikey
2) select "my digikey"
3) select "Part List(s)"
4) type a title for your list
5) press the "Create" button
6) add parts (repeatedly)
7) select "my digikey"
8) select "Part List(s)"
9) check the "Public" checkbox
10) press the "save" button

As you might have guessed, a public parts list is accessible to anyone. When you 
push the button to make it public it yields a URL that can be pasted on your (or 
DPRG's) web pages.

It does NOT give any information about the person who made it, so if you want 
people who use your list to know you made it, you'll need to put something in 
the reference/notes fields.
