Per Hixie's request, http://krijnhoetmer.nl/irc-logs/whatwg/20090827#l-727,
here's an example of a hyperlinked "represents" on an attribute definition.
"The id attribute _represents_ its element's unique identifier (ID)."

The represents is hyperlinked to a definition that says: "In the absence of
style-layer rules to the contrary (e.g. author style sheets), user agents are
expected to render an element so that it conveys to the user the meaning that
the element represents, as described by this specification"  -- that doesn't
make a lot of sense to me when the spec is talking about an attribute.
