Subject: re: Generating title for "link" element

Perhaps I have misunderstood the question. Why do you need a title?
isn't  this all you need?

<link xlink:href="http://yahoo.org";>

Note: you need to have the xlink namespace declared in your xml
document, especially your xincludes.

When transforming XML to epub with Docbook 1.76 stylesheets, I need to
generate a title for internal links using the "link" element; for
instance, when linking from a citation in the text to its full
reference in a reference list. The standard stylesheets will generate
"a href" in the resulting XHTML1-1 files, but I need to also generate
a title that is the same as the text within the "link" element. I
cannot specify a title as an xlink:title attribute of "link" because
it makes the XML invalid. So I need to develop the XSL code that
generates a title from the contents of "link" elements. Can someone
suggest a snippet of code please?
