The auto-show is still in development over in bug 102832. Good places to try it out are Bugzilla buglists, the W3C, and many machine-generated manuals or documents, such as the GNU Make manual."

The link toolbar picks up the "rel" attributes of <link> elements (<link rev="made"> is also grandfathered in). Right now, we assign "home", "start", "top", and "origin" to the "top" button, "up" and "parent" to the "up" button, "begin" and "first" to the "first" button, "next" and "child" to the "next" button, "prev" and "previous" to the "prev" button, "end" and "last" to the "last" button. The "Document" and "Other" menus will probably be combined soon, so I won't go into them; suffice it to say that rel="stylesheet" and rel="icon" or "shortcut icon" are filtered, but any other values of "rel" will appear in the menu.

The logic of exactly what gets mapped to what in the hierarchical buttons may change a bit once the spec in bug 103469 gets hammered out, but you should be fine if you stick with the HTML4-defined link types. (P3P*, schema, and meta will also need to be filtered, as well.)
