No where it is defined what "actuate" means. Though it is part of requirements. For example, 

	"cite = URI
	The value of this attribute is a URI that 
	designates a source document or message. This 
	attribute is intended to give further information 
	about the element's contents (e.g., the source from 
	which a quotation was borrowed, or the reason text 
	was inserted or deleted). User Agents MUST provide 
	a means for the user to actuate the link."
	
How a user agent actuate?
