  The probability of new, and old, user agents getting support for the
  seemingly non-backwards compatible XHTML 2.0 standard, when it becomes
  one, is rather slim.

  In the meantime it would be nice if, should the author desire to have
  a way for the user to jump about in the content to specific points,
  such navigation was included in a way that -all- browsers can
  understand.

  LINK would be ideal, but that idea effectively died many years ago.
  XHTML 2.0 nl is a nice, focused, little list and won't be a standard
  for some time to come, much less implemented, and definetly not
  backwards compatible any time soon.

  Internal links are not such a bad thing, guys. It takes the guesswork
  out of jumping about.
