   The spec defines special handling for rel="alternate stylesheet", but 
also defines that "alternate" with type="application/atom+xml" or 
type="application/rss+xml" implies the "feed" relationship.  Does this 
represent an alternate stylesheet, a syndication feed or both?

<link rel="alternate stylesheet" type="application/atom+xml" 
href="/feed" title="Blog Entries">

Firefox 2 and IE7 recognised it as a feed.  Opera 9 and and Safari 2 didn't.

(Though it should be noted that Opera and Safari have trouble with any 
other value specified with alternate, not just stylesheet).
