rel="me"

XFN - The XHTML Friends Network 1.1 introduced the "me" rel value which is used to indicate profile equivalence and for identity-consolidation.

rel="me" is used on hyperlinks from one page about a person to other pages about that same person.

For example, Tantek's Pownce profile has:

<a href="http://twitter.com/t" rel="me">Twitter Profile</a>

Publishers can use the XFN creator form to create rel-me hyperlinks.
