Unfortunately, this is a *lot* more difficult to implement than simply
putting rel='next' into the anchor links, because the trails.php code 
will have to prescan the page to find and process wikitrails before
the page ever gets handed over to the formatting routines to determine
the link targets (and this would have to be done *after* includes are
processed in the page itself).  It can be done, but it'll require a lot 
of redesign to the basic system so I'll probably just leave things as 
they are for now (without rel=next) unless there's a huge need/demand 
for it.

It would've been nice if HTML/XHTML allowed <link> tags in the <body>,
or if Opera recognized rel= in anchor tags.  Oh well.  I guess browsers
still aren't quite "there" yet.
