[microformats-discuss] Ambiguities in reltag specification

Okay, after some more experimentation I am confused.  In looking at
encodings, I did a technorati query for News & Politics
(http://www.technorati.com/tag/News%20&%20politics).  The first item
that came up was http://www.zigguratofdoom.com/?p=632.

I went and did a view source on that page to see how the tag had been
coded.  It appears that this is the coding:

<a href="http://www.zigguratofdoom.com/index.php?cat=13" title="View
all posts in News &#038; Politics" rel="category tag">News &#038;

In this case, it appears that the link text rather than the URL was
the source of the tag.  Is this another case of handling what is out
there rather than following the spec or is the link text what is
actually used?

BTW, allowing "+" for space really messes up us C++ programmers
looking for blog entries. :-)
