rel nofollow not exist
I just found today an interesting thing that I did not knew before.
rel=nofollow do not exist accordingly to w3.org
Here are the attibutes of rel:
Alternate Designates substitute versions for the document in which the link occurs. When used together with the lang attribute, it implies a translated version of the document. When used together with the media attribute, it implies a version designed for a different medium (or media).
Stylesheet Refers to an external style sheet. See the section on external style sheets for details. This is used together with the link type "Alternate" for user-selectable alternate style sheets.
Start Refers to the first document in a collection of documents. This link type tells search engines which document is considered by the author to be the starting point of the collection.
Next Refers to the next document in a linear sequence of documents. User agents may choose to preload the "next" document, to reduce the perceived load time.
Prev Refers to the previous document in an ordered series of documents. Some user agents also support the synonym "Previous".
Contents Refers to a document serving as a table of contents. Some user agents also support the synonym ToC (from "Table of Contents").
Index Refers to a document providing an index for the current document.
Glossary Refers to a document providing a glossary of terms that pertain to the current document.
Copyright Refers to a copyright statement for the current document.
Chapter Refers to a document serving as a chapter in a collection of documents.
Section Refers to a document serving as a section in a collection of documents.
Subsection Refers to a document serving as a subsection in a collection of documents.
Appendix Refers to a document serving as an appendix in a collection of documents.
Help Refers to a document offering help (more information, links to other sources information, etc.)
Bookmark Refers to a bookmark. A bookmark is a link to a key entry point within an extended document. The title attribute may be used, for example, to label the bookmark. Note that several bookmarks may be defined in each document.So Dofollow, Nofollow do not exist normally.

No, indeed I have study what W3C states about the REL. And Do follow or nofollow is not listed. I do not say that it's not used by the search engines I say that is not a valid atribute.
