From the above error message, it seems that you are using DocBook 5. In 
version 5, ulink is removed. Use link instead. It's not a bug in oXygen.

By the way, you could even turn *every* inline element into a link by 
using XLinks.

Use the following code:

 <link xlink:href="whateveraddress" 
       xlink:title="additional explainy bit">...</link>

You have to declare the XLink namespace somewhere, usually in the root
