When will SeaMonkey start supporting <link rel="license">?

Since a while now, the official documents at the W3C and WHATWG (here for instance) are saying that <link rel="license"> is now officially a link to the resource describing copyrights, and that <link rel="copyright"> is only retained for backward compatibility with older websites.

But I can't write <link rel="license"> because SeaMonkey doesn't support it!

So... I tried looking on bugzilla, but I'm terrible with searching on there, and I didn't find anything.
Therefore, yet again, I have to ask here: is there a bug report on bugzilla open for this? Otherwise I'll have to file one as quickly as possible.
Groetjes, Pim

Most likely SeaMonkey will support this whenever Firefox does, I'd think this type of thing would get implemented in the shared backend...
*Always* check the changelogs BEFORE updating that important software!

What I mean is the navigation system that SeaMonkey has, but Firefox doesn't.

For a quick example, I whipped up this to showcase the system: http://strictquirks.nl/seamonkey/
where you can navigate using the website navigation bar's menu. No other browser has this! Only Opera v12 and below came close.

But the problem is that when you use <link rel="license"> on your webpage, SeaMonkey doesn't display that in the same place as a <link rel="copyright"> link; it gets tucked away at the end of the "More" menu, with all the other unrecognised links.

So my question is, does there exist a bug report for this? Like I said, I'm terrible with searching on Bugzilla.

Pim you are a hard man to get in contact with! Your author page doesn't work, at http://strictquirks.nl/seamonkey/author.xhtml but at least there's a nice pic of you on http://profiles.delphiforums.com/n/pfx/ ... =504564135 :-)

I wanted to report to you an error (update reqd.) on strictquirks.nl
Specifically, the section "Errors with CSS: space in width spec" at http://examples.strictquirks.nl/quirks/ in that Safari (at least, version 9) now ignores the width — the div is as wide as the page.

Hm... haven't updated that page in a while. I see it's outdated in other areas too. Maybe it's time for a major rewrite! Thanks!

As for being hard to get in touch with, well, you could have tried info at the domain name. Sorry that the "Author" page doesn't work, but that one was only meant as part of the SeaMonkey navigation demo; those pages don't have any interaction.
