Rel design pattern

There is no need for the notion of "rel design pattern". Simply using the rel attribute as it is defined in the HTML spec is not a "design pattern". It's not a "design". It's not a "pattern". It's just using a single feature as it is defined in a spec.

to-do:

  1. go through all the pages that link to this one and edit them to not depend on this page, they should simply refer to a rel attribute page if anything.
  2. delete most of the content of this page, and leave in place a warning to avoid creating unnecessary "-design-pattern" pages which are simply restatements of using a single feature as already defined in another spec.

Purpose

Use the rel-design-pattern to indicate the meaning of a link (i.e. a href) in an XHTML document

How to use it

Examples

rel="bookmark"

The HTML4 spec describes a bookmark as "a link to a key entry point within an extended document". By convention (citation needed), this entry point also captures the notion of a "permalink".

<a href="archive/entry.html" rel="bookmark">A Document Entry</a>

rel="tag"

rel-tag defines semantic meaning for by the URI and enclosed elements using rel="tag"

<a href="http://technorati.com/tag/tech" rel="tag">tech</a>
