Hi Dave,

I agree with you about rel="meta". After all, metadata is not an 
alternative to data. I also like the idea of "alternate meta" 
although the TYPE attribute is probably sufficiently differentiating. 
I am toying with the following ideas:

<LINK REL=meta       TITLE="page info (HTML)"
       TYPE="text/html"
       HREF="/1/pageinfo/download/?type=HTML;link=1">

<LINK REL="meta"     TITLE="page info (XML)"
       TYPE="text/xml"
       HREF="/1/pageinfo/download/?type=XML;link=1">

<LINK REL="meta"     TITLE="page info (RDF)"
       TYPE="application/rdf+xml"
       HREF="/1/pageinfo/download/?type=RDF;link=1">

<A REL="meta"
    TYPE="text/html"
    HREF="/1/pageinfo/download/type=HTML;ref=banner">page info</A>

Currently my pageinfo script only returns HTML, but it could do more.
Note also that the use of a CGI means an .rdf extension should not be 
expected as the current spec seems to imply, making the TYPE that 
much more important.

Could you please pass these comments along to the list?

thanks,
-Walter
