since you seem to be seriously looking for an answer, I'll try to
formulate a suitable reply.
Otherwise I'd just laugh and ask if you are serious. This is the web
For XHTML 1.0 you could have a look at it's DTD:
At around line 290 you will find a comment like this one, describing the
relationships that might be expressed using the "rel" attribute of
the "link" element:
Relationship values can be used in principle:
a) for document specific toolbars/menus when used
with the link element in document head e.g.
start, contents, previous, next, index, end, help
b) to link to a separate style sheet (rel="stylesheet")
c) to make a link to a script (rel="script")
d) by stylesheets to control how collections of
html nodes are rendered into printed documents
e) to make a link to a printable version of this document
e.g. a PostScript or PDF version (rel="alternate" media="print")
So if I read this correctly and don't overlook something obvious, then
there is no specification for the behaviour you are looking for. The
handling of RSS feeds you describe seems to just be an implicit
I hope that helps.
