If a conflicting rel="nofollow dofollow" is parsed (in that order) which takes precedence?

The background of this question is that I am encountering a situation where interestingly I can set a dofollow on a link I care about but that will always end up in the rel="nofollow dofollow" form so I'm interested in the effect rel="nofollow dofollow" would have.

dofollow does not exist so I would infer that the link would be considered as nofollow only.

Thanks, wrong line of thinking then - too bad... – C.O. Jun 30 '13 at 0:21
