rel, which means relationship, specifies what data is being included to the document.
The <link> element is used for more than just the stylesheets. In the following example, a favicon is added to a website. The favicon represents a small icon, which size is usually 16 x 16 pixels, is placed near the title tag in most browsers or used as an icon in the bookmarks or even a shortcut to the website. It serves as branding for a company or a website.
media attribute can be used related to stylesheets with different screen sizes as shown in the following example. If the conditions of screen size are met, only the specified stylesheet is loaded to the website, thus reducing loading time to the website.
