A simple (possibly dumb) question. Is there a standard mechanism for  
linking an HTML page to the non-information resource that it describes?

For example, in the page

<http://dbpedia.org/page/Mogwai_(band)>

I see a number of <link> elements in the header that point me to  
alternate representations (rdf, json etc).  There's nothing in the  
header that points me to *<http://dbpedia.org/resource/Mogwai_(band) 
 >* (as far as I can tell) though. There is an "about" attribute on  
the body that does so:

<body onload="init();" about="http://dbpedia.org/resource/Mogwai_ 
(band)">
...

In contrast, if I look at the page for the band on the BBC, i.e.

<http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/artists/ 
d700b3f5-45af-4d02-95ed-57d301bda93e>

there seems to be no reference at all to the non-information resource

<http://www.bbc.co.uk/music/artists/ 
d700b3f5-45af-4d02-95ed-57d301bda93e#artist>

which is the "subject" of the page.

Any conventions in operation here?

Thanks,

	Sean
