Creating Extended Links

Extended Linking Element Attributes

xlink:type Elements containing the attribute xlink:type with the value 'extended' should be treated as extended links by XLink processors.
xlink:role Provides a "description of the link's content". For extended links, might be used to specify different kinds of processing for different types of locator sets. The role must be a URI.
xlink:title Provides a human-readable title for the link, pretty much like the popup text that appears now in some browsers. Child elements with an xlink:type attribute set to title may also be used in cases where multiple titles are needed, perhaps for multi-language scenarios.
