Question alternate view HTML

Hi, everyone. I was wondering if anybody has had any experience trying to create and navigate to alternate document views as described in the HTML section of 'How to Create Content for Your Iliad'. This document says to simply drop a <link> tag in the document with the attribute 'rel' set to 'alt' and 'href' set to the target page. I have done these things and expected my documents to switch with a long press to the confirm key, but nothing happens. Has anybody else had any luck with this?

I have tried the alternate view in next way. First I typed to the document from which I wanted to go to the alt page: <link rel="alt" href="your_alt_pagehtml">.

In this alt page I typed: <meta name="meta_name_of_alt_page" type="alternate_view">.

Finally, I put the needed lines to the manifest file:
<pagelist type="alternate_view" count="2">
<page number="1" url="alt1.html"/>
<page number="2" url="alt2.html"/>.

And of course, you have to type in the alternate page the previous and next links in order to use the page-flip bar of you iLiad.
