hello.

i think that the first sentence of http://www.w3.org/TR/xlink/#N899 
should read

"Definition: A local resource is an XML element that participates in a 
link by virtue of having as its *ancestor*, or being itself, a linking 
element. "

rather than

"Definition: A local resource is an XML element that participates in a 
link by virtue of having as its *parent*, or being itself, a linking 
element. "

however, as i understand it, it would also be possible to keep the 
definition at it is and let the "local resource" being non-recursive. 
but if this was the original idea, why is the "having as its parent" 
part in there? maybe i am misunderstanding something here...

cheers,
