HTML 2.0 had so many strange elements I had forgotten. DIR, MENU, NEXTID, XMP, LISTING, KBD, SAMP, VAR. I hadn't forgotten TT. I'm reminded of Texinfo, to be honest. And I can see which elements they needed to imitate Gopher menus, basically.
@kensanata Yes, <LINK> was about to be used to provide up, previous, next navigation structure (the browser could choose to have additional buttons next to "Back" for example).
@saper Yeah, I remember adding those to my static website way back when!
@saper And I think lynx actually supported them. Or do I misremember?
@kensanata It still supports them
# #prev next
<html><head><link rel="prev" href="prev.html" ><link rel="next" href="next.html" ></head><body>here</body></html>
