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."

As I was looking through the bug list, I came across something I had not seen before: mention of a rel="icon" attribute for the LINK tag. It's not part of the standard, but I haven't been able to find any documentation on it. What is this attrbute value for, and how is it used? It looks like some kind of analog to IE's favicon.ico, but more flexible (not to mention that it doesn't hit Web servers needlessly whenever the page is loaded). Am I correct in this?
