I just want to use a link! What now?

I'm a lost newbie. Please help me back on track.

I need to use XML for a specific tech-writing goal. To teach myself 
about XML, I'm creating a small, very simple web page coded in XML and 
rendered with CSS (no DTD just yet).

On this web page, I want to use graphics and hypertext links.  I thought 
  I could use Xlinks for that, but now I'm guessing not.  Browser 
support is too thin. There's not much enthusiasm for Xlinks, and I'm not 
sure why.

Is there some other technology I should be using? Do I need to transform 
the XML into XHTML or something before feeding it to the browser?  Would 
I need, say, CGI scripting using an XSL interpreter?

Sorry to be a nuisance, but I feel like I'm at a dead end and need help.
