           Summary: associate printable pages and less-convenient-to-print
                    pages with link rel value "print"
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: All

The principal content across multiple pages is commonly also available in a
single-page layout that's more convenient to print. But a search engine does
not need to list both.

The existing value "alternate" is inadequate when both documents are of the
same type, medium, and language, as they often are.

I propose section 6.12.3 add a value for the link element for the rel atribute
to refer to the easier-to-print page's URL. I propose the rel value be "print".

I don't know whether the rev value can be properly supported in all cases,
unless multiple href attributes are allowed or will be. One possibility is that
the href for rev="print" should be to the first page in a multi-page series;
another is that is may be to any page in the series, as the website owner
wishes.

Where the two formats are both single-page formats, e.g., where one has an
artistic background and the other has a plain white background, rev would work
fine.

I plan to add this to the RelExtensions wiki unless there's an objection.

Thank you.
