RE: [xml-dev] xml:href, xml:rel and xml:type

If one were to go down this path, relative addressing, as in xpath, would
need to be in the mix.

I find that when I use these constructs, though, I confuse users.

Just checking as you didn't mention it - are you aware of xlink:


Usually when this question comes up, the answer is that linking is done in a
different layer to the xml (the presentation layer).
