Details

The different links types in HTML 4.0 are not implemented, they are
specified here:
http://www.w3.org/TR/REC-html40/types.html#h-6.12

Some useful examples:

<LINK rel="prev" href="chapter1.html">
<LINK rel="next" href="chapter3.html">
<LINK rel="contents" href="contents.html">
<LINK rel="index" href="index.html">
<LINK rel="glossary" href="glossary.html">
<LINK rel="copyright" href="copyright.html">
What exactly do you mean by "not implemented"? The information is in the content
model, and so the DOM can be used to retrieve the information.

We don't display a "navigation bar", for example, if that's what you're asking
for. I think that's more of a feature request than a bug, though
Status: NEW → ASSIGNED
After talking about this with the bug reporter, here's what he is looking for:

"I'd suggest either a dockable pane containing a list of the available
navigation elements, or an icon (as on the menu bar) or small glyph (as
sometimes appear on the status bar i.e. the security icon) to indicate
that there is additional navigational options. This can be clicked on to
give further options. The two could of course be combined... so that
clicking on the glyph brings up the navigational box which can be
minimised to become just a glyph again"
Severity: normal → enhancement
Status: ASSIGNED → RESOLVED

Resolution: --- → REMIND
The bug report is suggesting something very reasonable, but it's more of a
feature request than a bug because the HTML4 spec suggests how this information
could be used, but doesn't really mandate

I'm changing the severity to "enhancement" and marking it REMIND so I don't
forget about it, but we probably won't implement it for version 1.0
