whether the output format is xhtml doesn't affect whether transformation
is needed, that is a property of the input format and in particular how
far the input is from the css rendering model in the browser.

If your input is <ref idref="foo"/> in some document vocabulary and you
want it to appear effectively as xhtml

<a href="#foo">Equation 3</a> in <a href="#sec4">Section 4</a>

then CSS just isn't up to the job (I think). That isn't a criticsm of
CSS, it wasn't intended for that. This is the sort of thing that happens
all the time in stylesheets for document formats though.
