I'm very happy to announce that:
"This document proposes a facility, similar to that of HTML BASE, for defining base URIs for parts of XML documents."
XML Linking Language (XLink) Version 1.0
"This specification defines the XML Linking Language (XLink), which allows elements to be inserted into XML documents in order to create and describe links between resources. It uses XML syntax to create structures that can describe links similar to the simple unidirectional hyperlinks of today's HTML, as well as more sophisticated links."
reached W3C Recommendation status today 27 June 2001.
I hope that they will fullfill the original requirement of providing improved linking mechanism, including support for scalable annotation mechanisms, out of line linking and support for advanced linking features in general.
I would like to thank the XML Linking Working group members, past and present who have helped bringing those specification to this milestone.
I also hope the XPointer specification will reach a similar status in a reasonable timeframe, this is in a large part dependant on getting enough interoperable implementation.
