But of course.  Given:

  <figure id="figure_of_an_airplane">
    . . .

You could reference it with:

  The first airplane (see <xref linkend="figure_of_an_airplane"/>) shows how
  . . .

After processing, it will look like:

  The first airplane (see Figure 2.4) shows how . . .

The "Figure" is localized, so if you have lang="zh_??" in the top element, it 
will display properly for Chinese (where "??" is either cn or tw).  I know it 
works with lang="ja" (XSL ==> HTML and FO->FOP->PDF paths).

If you're doing an example, instead of <figure>, use <example>.  The <xref> 
remains the same but will output "Example 2.4" instead.

Hope this helps.
