*#*:* WordPress blogs, default permalink structure (http://example.com/?cat=N).  Pretty permalinks (http://example.com/category/<tagname>) are supported through various methods, but cannot be enabled by default due to technical variances in web servers and setups. The rigidity of the spec has set a high technical barrier to entry. Even if the category name were put into the URL, it would have to be in the querystring for default WordPress setups, which isn't supported in the spec.  A querystring fallback (?tag=<tagname>) would enable many more systems to use rel-tag.  --[[User:MarkJaquith|MarkJaquith]] 15:39, 20 Oct 2006 (PDT)

relTag Issues

These are externally raised issues about rel-tag with broadly varying degrees of merit. Thus some issues are REJECTED for a number of obvious reasons (but still documented here in case they are re-raised), and others contain longer discussions. Some issues may be ACCEPTED and perhaps cause changes or improved explanations in the spec. Submitted issues may (and probably will) be edited and rewritten for better terseness, clarity, calmness, rationality, and as neutral a point of view as possible. Write your issues well. — Tantek
