I wonder how one should make (possible) hyperlinks in the doc to other
items inside the XSchema, something "equivalent" to the below:

Doc for ElementX:
"ElementX is for purpose X, it is quite similar to
<ElementName>ElementY</ElementName>, but differs a bit, especially the
attribute <AttributeName>AttributeInX</AttributeName> is very different
from the corresponding <AttributeName
Element="ElementY">AttributeInY</AttributeName> in

Using something like this makes it easy to strip the "hyperlinks" away, or
to convert/process them into real hyperlinks in the end-product documentation.
(An XSchema viewer/editor could of course render them as hyperlinks directly)

Does there already exist a standard way of doing this?
