The "rel" attribute in HTML specifies the relationship between the current page and the linked page. The "bookmark" value for the "rel" attribute specifies that the linked page should be considered a permanent bookmark-style link, which is useful for creating a table of contents for the document. When used in a hyperlink, it indicates that the target URL represents a bookmark-style link, i.e., a link to a specific, named location within a document. The user's web browser or other software can use this information to provide users with convenient ways to access frequently used locations within the document, such as through a menu or list of bookmarks.

The "bookmark" value of the "rel" attribute is typically used in combination with the "href" attribute to create a bookmark-style link. For example:

Go to Section 1

In this example, the "href" attribute specifies that the link goes to the element on the current page with the ID of "section1". The "rel" attribute with the value "bookmark" indicates that this link represents a bookmark-style link.

When the user clicks on this link, the browser will scroll to the element on the page with the corresponding ID, bringing it into view. This can be useful for providing users with a quick way to navigate to specific sections or parts of a long web page.

To summarize, the rel="bookmark" link attribute is used to create bookmark-style links within a document. It signifies that the linked URL represents a specific location or section within the document, allowing users to navigate directly to that location.
