Exactly. That is what I am saying you *should* do. The way the person I
was responding to seemed to be suggesting this instead:

<LINK REL=backlink HREF="wherever/" TITLE="backlink1">
<LINK REL=backlink HREF="wherever1/" TITLE="backlink1">
<LINK REL=backlink HREF="wherever2/" TITLE="backlink2">
<LINK REL=backlink HREF="wherever3/" TITLE="backlink3">
<LINK REL=backlink HREF="wherever4/" TITLE="backlink4">
<LINK REL=backlink HREF="wherever5/" TITLE="backlink5">
<LINK REL=backlink HREF="wherever6/" TITLE="backlink6">
<LINK REL=backlink HREF="wherever7/" TITLE="backlink7">
<LINK REL=backlink HREF="wherever8/" TITLE="backlink8">

Which gets nasty fast. I have pages with well over a hundred backlinks.

Nope.
