New text for section 5.2 of the syndication format specification.
5.2 Atom Autodiscovery
Atom Autodiscovery is defined by the Atom Autodiscovery RFC draft.
An Atom autodiscovery element is a link element, as defined in section 12.3 of HTML 4 [W3C.REC-html401-19991224]. As with other types of link elements, an autodiscovery element MAY appear within the <head> element of an HTML or XHTML document, but it MUST NOT appear within the <body>.
Example of autodiscovery link on an HTML page.
<html> <head> ... <link rel="alternate" type="application/atom+xml" href="some uri" /> ... </head> ... </html>
[MarkPilgrim] The text of this proposal was "stolen" (as Randy puts it above) from the wrong place. This entire Pace should be updated to reflect the wording of the latest Atom Autodiscovery RFC draft
