Well - nothing is fool-proof and something that ends with .pdf is most
of the time is a pdf-document. One could perhaps use mime-types or such
- but then one would need to ask the servers for it.
So - as I previously suggested - either a new microformat defining the
type or just guessing because guessing might be better than nothing.
Could such a microformat be designed like <a href="foobar.com/foo/bar/"
With pointing to a hidden hCard like <a href="samesite#anchor"
rev="microformat/hcard"> with or without an anchor defining the position
of the microformat?
Just pure brainstorming here - I have no idea myself even if this would
be good or not. There would perhaps be some use for it?
