'rel' stands for the relationship between the value of the 'href' attribute of a tag and the current page. So, 'rel' would only work if there is an 'href' attribute alongside it. 'stylesheet' means that the document being linked to the webpage is of type CSS, or Cascading Style Sheets. In a nutshell, this is used to design webpages. Example: <link rel="stylesheet" href="styles.css"> There are some other values that can go into 'rel' like 'alternate', which says the linked document should be loaded in case the original one fails to do so, 'author', which says that the linked document leads to the author of the page, 'help', which says that the linked document leads to the help page, etc. Here's a complete list of all values accepted by 'rel': https://www.w3schools.com/tags/att_link_rel.asp
