for HTTP links
Link: <http://www.acme.com/corporate.css>; REL=stylesheet

In RFC 2068 - Hypertext Transfer Protocol -- HTTP/1.1
http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2068.txt LINK

but has disappeared from RFC 2616

in HTML 5, second paragraph

         Some versions of HTTP defined a Link: header, to be
         processed like a series of link elements. When
         processing links, those must be taken into consideration
         as well. For the purposes of ordering, links defined by
         HTTP headers must be assumed to come before any links in
         the document, in the order that they were given in the
         HTTP entity header. Relative URIs in these headers must
         be resolved according to the rules given in HTTP, not
         relative to base URIs set by the document (e.g. using a
         base element or xml:base attributes). [RFC2616]
