Ooops!

Should have said:

A hyperlink (e.g., HTTP URI) is just a kind of identifier (naming 
mechanism) for entity identification. That's fundamental, in regards to 
Web Architecture. Look closely are <link/>, "Link:", and various 
notations associated with RDF, in all cases you are looking at different 
representations of entity relationships types facilitated by a 
predicate/property/relation.

<link rel="{some-relation} .../> is how this is achieved in HTML. 
Basically, @rel indicates Relation, and the {some-relation} indicates 
the relation identifier (be it IANA registered relations or others 
identified by HTTP URIs).
