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:

  http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xlink

The related spec, XPointer, provides a way to refer to particular elements in
an XML document, without the use of ID attributes.  See:

  http://www.w3.org/TR/WD-xptr

Hope this helps!

 Hi

When using msxsl,it seems that it does not know how to deal with
linking.
A simple link like <a href="xxx.html">xxxx</a> does not function.
Am I right or wrong?


Thanks in advance
Farid
