You need to somehow identify your link resources. You can achieve that by 
defining ID attributes for the appropriate elements in your schema, but you 
could also use XPointers to point out the nodes.

The identification of resources is a tricky issue in itself, however, 
especially when implementing extended XLink so the answers you'll get in 
this regard will probably vary. For a neat way for avoiding many of the 
issues, see http://www.w3.org/TR/2003/NOTE-XIndirect-20030612/.
