Subject: LINK implementations across browsers? Greetings.

Is this still the technical solution for this type of linking? I think that the link element was barely supported in the past, and is probably even less so now. The correct answer is probably now one of the group of formats related to RDFa, which embeds metadata within the body of the content. See the examples on that wikipedia page; I also (for example) include this in the HTML that I generate at eg . The slightly broader idea of 'microformats'  is also of interest. There's quite a lot more one could say about the details of this, but the key question is: does anyone/anything read this? The 'usage' section of the RDFa wikipedia page points to , which is a survey of such metadata formats, last updated in November 2019. That suggests that RDFa is the least commonly used (that makes me slightly grumbly, because it's possibly the most principled and flexible, but remains a bit tricky to use correctly).
