NCSA Mosaic 3.0 also has glyphs for defined link relationships like 
Index, Up, Next, etc.  For a look at some of these, see

Mosaic also provides buttons for unknown relationships, which has the 
unfortunate side-effect of including a button to an externally LINKed 
style sheet (as shown above).  And for some reason, Mosaic refers to 
REV=Made links as "Bookmark".

Other browsers support LINKs as well.  UdiWWW (for Windows) has had 
support for LINKs for ages:

And of course Lynx supports them:

AMSD Ariadna (a Windows browser) also supports LINKs, but 
unfortunately I can't give you a screen shot since the last couple 
versions of that browser GPF on startup for me.  Earlier versions 
(before Java support was added) were more stable, and offered LINKs 
via a pull-down menu--a nice approach given the heavy use of screen 
real-estate by NCSA Mosaic 3.0 and UdiWWW.
