Re: Re: "There are six XLink elements" - True or False? Discus
"XLink linking element" is formally defined, "XLink element" is informally defined. From section 2.1: [Definition: It is made explicit by an XLink linking element, which is an XLink-conforming XML element that asserts the existence of a link.] There are six XLink elements; only two of them are considered linking elements. The others provide various pieces of information that describe the characteristics of a link. I also don't think this is confusing. I sat down to really read the spec for the first time the other day and had no problems with this. -- Ron "Eve L.

(Also note that "XLink > element type" has the same problem.)
