Hi Ivan,

What about collections of documents like the set of
three tutorials on HTML [1] [2] + CSS [3] by Dave
Raggett? I believe they can be considered as a
collection although their relationship is not
established via the <link rel> element. The three
documents share a "navigation bar" at the top of the
page with links to each other using relative paths.
Should I have to transform it to absolute paths
pointing to the english version?. 

A different example, much more like the Zara question,
 is the translation of the document "Web Standards
Switch" [4] I made. I translated also all the
documents linked from it [5], maintaining the original
links to the english version. But now I'm asking
myself if I could add a link to the translated version
(as an inline translator note) while keeping the link
to the english one.

Regards, 

Fernando Gutiérrez
