HTML Working Group,

The citing of referenced materials, the cross-referencing of document elements, and the structured referencing of referenced materials in hypertext documents can be facilitated with HTML and CSS4. Hypertext document elements can contain mathematical and scientific notations and document elements can have URL's for hyperlinking documents.

For scholarly and scientific documents, some topical new elements include: a <reference> element for indicating referenced materials, stylizable to a number of document styles, and a <note> element for stylizable document notes and footnotes.

Hypertext documents can cite references and cross-reference document elements, resembling LaTeX's \autoref, \cpageref, \cref, \eqref, \label, \nameref, \pageref, \ref, and \vref, with HTML <a> elements, <cite> elements, possibly with a @cite attribute, or new elements, such as <ref>.  Some CSS4 style topics include: http://dev.w3.org/csswg/selectors4/#idref-combinators, http://dev.w3.org/csswg/css3-gcpm/#cross-references, http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/generate.html#counters, and http://www.w3.org/TR/css3-lists/.

Kind regards,

Adam Sobieski
