    The HTMLAnchorElement.relList read-only property reflects the rel attribute. It is a live DOMTokenList containing the set of link types indicating the relationship between the resource represented by the <a> element and the current document.

    The property itself is read-only, meaning you can substitute the DOMTokenList by another one, but the content of the returned list can be changed.


    var relstr = anchorElt.relList;


    var anchors = document.getElementsByTagName("a");
    var length = anchors.length;
    for (var i = 0; i < length; i++) {
      var list = anchors[i].relList;
      var listLength = list.length;
      console.log("New area found.");
      for (var j = 0; j < listLength; j++) {
