It depends on your needs what approach to internal linking is more suitable for you. One case where the XLink-based, fragment identifier scheme is useful is when XInclude is being used. XML ID/IDREF links cannot span XInclude boundaries. this means that if my document lives in several files, I cannot combine them together using xinclude because I require link validation and cross-linking between document parts. (I also produce chunked output thus xl:href="#dir" will not work for me anyway). I am not using xinclude anyway, I have been using SYSTEM entities, and it appears that I can keep using them. <2> what do I use instead of <structfield> to mark up a slot (field) in a structure or class? thanks. -- Sam Steingold (http://www.podval.org/~sds) running w2k <http://www.iris.org.il> <http://www.jihadwatch.org/> <http://truepeace.org> <http://www.dhimmi.com/> <http://www.honestreporting.com> Abandon all hope, all ye who press Enter.
