The "rel-atts" attribute group is deprecated in favor of the relational-atts group, which adds new attributes to the original "rel-atts" group.
The "rel-atts" attribute group includes attributes whose values may be used for representing navigational relationships. These attributes occur only on elements that represent relationships between topics. Beginning with DITA 1.2, the parameter is deprecated in favor of the relational-atts group; it is still defined so that specializations which use this entity may upgrade more easily.
