> What say you?
I have been pushing for acceptance of document specific toolbars
based on LINK for some time. Can we take on board these ideas as
expressed in the HTML3 I-D?
If Murray provide the document in HTML form, I will reference it
from the online HTMl3 document files, otherwise, I would like to
continue to cover this material in the HTML3 document.
o REL and REV remain open-ended CDATA strings with the ability
for authors to define their own names.
o The I-D defines a set of reserved keywords from this open-ended
space of names for REL/REV attributes.
o Some reserved words are defined for use with document specific
toobars/menus while others are defined for specific purposes
o Some reserved words are held back for future definition
Here is my suggested list for toolbars/menus:
(toolbars can be customised with icons via stylesheets)
HOME -- defined by browser --
HELP -- for help with orientation, not help on topic --
BOOKMARK -- for author specified menu, caption via TITLE --
The other REL values for LINK
BANNER -- see HTML3 I-D for explanation --
Values for use in defining Guided Tours with <A> element.
These allow Guided Tours to be defined using HTML, for instance
as part of tables of contents, e.g. <A REL=NODE REV=TOC HREF=Chap1.html>...
NODE -- implies PREVIOUS/NEXT LINKs for given URI --
PATH -- given URI contains <A REL=NODE> links that
should be inserted into the guided tour --
The browser treats the REL=NODE URIs as forming a sequence of nodes
to follow and sets the <LINK REL=PREVIOUS>, NEXT as appropriate for
each node as it is visited.
