Subject: Re: HTML 4.0 draft available

After a quick read, some questions regarding LINK REV/REL attributes.

What happened to Parent, Sibling, Child, Top, and Owns? (as in <LINK 
REL=TOP HREF="index.html">) Are they deprecated? And what about 
Citation, Bibiography, Footnote, etc?

Also, some suggestions (for LINK REL=...):

   For documents that are related, but with no obvious hierarchy or

   Site maintainer, as in <LINK REV=MAINTAINS
   HREF="">, not necessarily the author.
