Creating Extended Links
- Sets of Locators Extended links use containment to identify sets of locators (and occasionally local resources). The set is defined by a parent element, which contains the properties for the set, while elements within that parent may be locators or resources.
- Set Properties The set itself has a role and a title. This information can be used to build link directories outside of the context of particular documents and to define the type of link within the document.
- Locator Properties Locators contain the all-important href attribute, as well as role, title, and IDs. The href attribute is really the identifying feature of a locator, providing a URL pointer to resources.
- Arcs Extended links may also contain arcs, which identify connections between particular locators. They provide detailed information on traversal paths, including show and actuate information.
