By itself, XML does very little along the lines of there linking. There is
the attribute types of ID, IDREF, and IDREFS which provide internal
referencing within a document. But these do little to determine the semantics
of the reference.
At a more encompassing level, XLink allows you to create elements with very
general links. To find out more, check out:
The related spec, XPointer, provides a way to refer to particular elements in
an XML document, without the use of ID attributes. See:
Hope this helps!

A simple link like <a href="xxx.html">xxxx</a> does not function.
