> Abstract
> --------
> This specification defines the XML Linking Language (XLink) Version
> 1.1,
> which allows elements to be inserted into XML documents in order to
> create and describe links between resources. It uses XML syntax to
> create structures that can describe links similar to the simple
> unidirectional hyperlinks of today's HTML, as well as more
> sophisticated
> links.
