  • see my example test above which has rel="boodongle alternate boodongle" that should give ['alternate', 'boodongle'] as output

  • dglazkov - I've added the brainstorm proposal for use of rel home+alternate here: http://microformats.org/wiki/rel-home#use_with_rel-alternate - please feel free to add your opinion :)

  • tantek: The sole example of interacting rel values is "alternate" and "stylesheet". In every other case, rel values are independent. Thus, "home" and "alternate" shouldn't combine either.

  • might be wrong, but i thought rel=alternate links should link to an alternate version of your own site, not someone else's.

  • alternate implies that the destination URL is an alternate version of the *current* page

  • Yeah, alternate specifically defines itself as changing meaning depending on other factors: https://html.spec.whatwg.org/multipage/links.html#rel-alternate

  • tantek: which was kind of the same issue that you brought up with "home alternate" - "alternate" means an alternate representation of a specific page - not a link to something related

  • thus I should rephrase when I said "'alternate' is the correct use" - more accurately, "alternate" is the *modern* use.

  • edited /rel-alternate (+6) "/* special combinations */ use 'alternative' in prose as 'alternate' means something else"
