Why the markup below that should be placed in each XML document 
is more practical 
<hlink xmlns="http://www.w3.org/2002/06/hlink"
       namespace="miscellaneous"
       element="go"
       locator="@to"
       effect="replace"
       actuate="onRequest"
       replacement="@target"/>
then
go[to]
       {-o-link:attr(to);
       -o-link-source:current;}
For me CSS solution seems to be more flexible, and more practical, you even 
could change behaviour by selecting alternative style sheets.

Note also that the main result of whole XLink activity is that after several 
years we still can't use links in XML. No browser supports XLink it since it 
too complex and no one wants to use it since it's too awkward.
