	Hi Tom!
	
	Just to complete this account, Lynx implemented <link rel=made ...>
(with owner as a synonym) many, many years ago, when it was a HYPEREZ
client, and the WWW what just a "good idea".  Lynx used it with mailto
hrefs, before there was any RFC describing URLs.  Lynx 2.5 and 2.6 also
support all the rel tokens in the HTML 3.0 draft for creating banner
links, and create banner links for them, as do EmacWWW and UdiWWW, I
believe.

	Of course, the current meaning for "no browser supports ..."
perhaps makes this information irrelevant. :) :) :)
