See, now THAT doesn't make sense. I just understood the difference
between rev and rel in relation to a Vote Link, and you need both. In
fact, any HTML spec should keep it--and doing away with it because
it's a common mistake is plain silly. It's too bad that the folks
doing HTML5 are cutting it out. Maybe we can convince them otherwise.
They'll be hobbling the spec if they do.
