7.4 Auto-discovery of Introspection Documents

To assist clients in automatically locating Introspection documents, a link element whose rel attribute value contains the keyword "introspection" MAY appear within the <head> element of a HTML or XHTML document. The href attribute of the introspection link MUST be the URI of an introspection document represented in the format identified by the type attribute. The value of the href attribute MAY be a relative URI resolvable to a full URI using the document's base URI.

Zero or more introspection links MAY appear within a single document.

<link rel="introspection"
      type="application/atomserv+xml"
