This problem is why I suggested earlier on the list a "follow(href)" function. My choice of syntax for the pointer is, of course, the syntax of select patterns, not the current XPointer syntax. It would probably be appropriate to follow the pattern of id() and xsl:id to make the stylesheet aware of which attributes were link attributes if there was no clue from the DTD.
