Urh, whats wrong with the LINK element, e.g.
<LINK rel="up" href=...>
<LINK rel="prev" href=...>
<LINK rel="next" href=...>
The links specified with the LINK tag are assumed to be global to the
entire document and so could be automatically added to a menu or toolbar.

Gee thanks. I have just started to write HTML+ up as an RFC which attempts
to clarify the details of the format and how it should be handled by browsers.
This should be ready within three/four weeks.
p.s. Tim's spec seems to have the attribute named "REV" but "REL" seems
more appropriate. Any comments anyone?
