I'm interested to know if anyone is aware of the history behind the rev=made
feature in lynx?  The current implementation violates HTML in a couple of

docs/CHANGES2.3 says this:

* ownership is no longer inherited.
* link rev="owner" href="mailto:ADDRESS"; now accepted as well as
  link rev="made" href="mailto:ADDRESS"; to define the URL of the
  owner or person responsible for the info.

That's "when".  For "who" - I don't know, other than by context that it
wasn't Foteos Macrides.

1) It only looks for the attribute on <link> hyperlinks and not on <a>
2) rev=made implies that the email address was made by the page, rel=made or
rev=made by would be better

I don't see this in the HTML 4.0 spec...

I'm also wondering if anything that isn't lynx supports this, as I can find
very little documenation on the format anywhere.  Would there be any
interest in using more modern (and these days common) formats like hCard?
