That just fired a neuron.

The Sun patent on string-range linking might well have been preceeded 
by Novell's (or someone else's) use of such hyperlinks in their 
techdoc. They used to link to sections via searches on text contained 
in the titles (in other words, linking via string ranges).

In DynaText, that looked like:
      query("<section> cont <title> cont 'My Title'")
in XPointer
      xpointer(string-range(//section/title,"My Title"))
