that's what RDF can be used for:

example www.dublincore.org


<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" lang="en-US" xml:lang="en-US">
<meta name="generator" content="HTML Tidy, see www.w3.org" />
<title>Dublin Core Metadata Initiative (DCMI)</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="/css/default.css" type="text/css" />
<link rel="meta" href="index.shtml.rdf" />

links to:

  <?xml version="1.0" ?>
