When link elements are commented out, the spider/parser
identifies them as legitimate links for checking.

I don't know if this markup will come through as intended,
but it is typical of the cases I have seen.

<!-- link rel="glossary" href="/Glossary.htm"
title="Example" type="text/html" / -->

Where links are commented out like this, I suggest they
should not be followed.
