XML Accessibility Guidelines

Guideline 2: Create semantically-rich languages

XLink and XPointer are W3C standards for creating and describing links between resources, such as simple HTML hyperlinks or more sophisticated links and fragment identifiers. When the namespace is utilized, links become recognizable to XLink applications.

Requirement

Use the standard XML linking and pointing mechanisms of XLink and XPointer when linking to URIs or for addressing components of XML based internet media

Techniques


<myxlink xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink"
xlink:href="http://mysite/myfile.xml">
      Current List of references
</myxlink>
