A link element may contain optional
attributes that describe the remote resource, that is, the
document or other resource to which the link points
The title contains a short plain text description.
The role contains a URI pointing to a long description.
<AUTHOR xmlns:xlink="http://www.w3.org/1999/xlink" xlink:href="mailto:email@example.com" xlink:title="Send email to Elliotte Rusty Harold" xlink:role="http://www.elharo.com/"> Please drop me a line. </AUTHOR>
As with all other attributes, the
attributes should be declared in the DTD for all the
elements to which they belong. For example, this is a
reasonable declaration for the above
