More on Short URL Auto-Discovery

I linked to Robert Spychala’s “Short URL Auto-Discovery” proposal just 10 days ago, but there’s been a lot of discussion and momentum since then, and Spychala has updated his proposal accordingly. I really like where the proposal stands now, recommending this HTML syntax:

<link rel="shorturl" href="" />

and this HTTP header:

Link: <>; rel=shorturl
