We are starting to add the link elements into some of our documentation. 
It would be nice if IE and others in addition to Mozilla did something 
with it.

Here is some drafty documentation
   http://www.jsoft.com/ts/tools/HTML/links/Chapter1.html
Turn on the Site Navigation Bar in a recent Mozilla
   View->Show/Hide->Site Navigation Bar
and click on the above url. The Top and Up don't have their link 
elements hooked up. That is an exercise for our students.

Not site maps, but a step forward that may result in useful info.


We would like to have some simple tools where we can describe the 
relationships in rdf and be able to generate the html link elements. It 
would be even nicer if we could also get the relationships for a page 
from the html link elements and have it feed back into rdf.

It should be 'easy' to get rdf out of xhtml with link elements and then 
get link elements back out of the rdf. Any pointers to anyone's work on 
translating link elements into rdf and back?
