Opera is capable of supporting simple XLinks, though it does it through an
extension to CSS.  See:

I pulled that from a style sheet they included to support WML viewing.

Thanks Simon,

That is useful information. Clearly Opera has been using a non-standard XLink
like functionality.

Perhaps they were waiting for a more stable specification than was the case
when you wrote your article.

With the availability of a Proposed Recommendation for XLink I hope they will
soon move to a standard XLink syntax.

I will forward your reply to the XLink mailing list on YahooGroups.com, since
I don't think you are a member of that one.

Thanks again for the information
