After all, CGM is *not* XML, nor even textual! Processing links requires understanding what the format of the link target is, and only when you know that do you know what a fragment identifier means. If OTOH you don't undertsand the format, you need to pass off to someone who does. This is commonplace nowadays with graphics formats, which are handled by external applications. All that's needed is a platform-standard way of passing the fragment id to the external application (or plug-in, same thing from 20,000 feet). -- John Cowan cowan@c...
