Hm, it's subtler than that, since you could have used the CSS to
specify that *anything* in the docbook instance is to be treated as a
hyperlink. I.e. the hyperlink-ness is in the CSS not in the instance.
I can see the elegance in this.
Dammit, I'm still uncomfortable with moving this information from a
self-descriptive form in the instance to another resource, and I'm
uncomfortable with the notion that "font-family" is at a similar
semantic level to "hyperlink". More thought required. -Tim
