<link> element and accessibility/ platform support


From: Karl Groves

Does someone have information or a resource that explains the accessibility benefits of the <link> element (other than the potential for alternative presentations)
How do screenreaders behave with <link>? Particularly, is it beneficial to supply relationships such as "next", "previous", "start", etc.?

Next, what is the level of support for this element within screenreaders? Browser support (read as: Internet Exploder) for the element is poor. Does Window Eyes support it? Does JAWS? How so? How well?
