"If it ain't broke, don't fix it." If you've got a linkbase that works fine now, go with it - there is no need for you to use XLink except, as you say, as "a convenient transport representation." Of course, in many senses, XML itself is "just" a "convenient transport representation," with data coming from databases, generated from the state of some process, or otherwise not existing natively as pointy brackets. Of course, I think you knew this - but thanks for the leading question. (-: ~Chris - -- Christopher R.
