Thanks. I've made a first-draft stab at implementing XPointers in DSSSL (http://www.drmacro.com/hyprlink/xlink/) from which a variety of useful XLink-to-? transforms could be built. I'm also in the process of building general-purpose HyTime engine that will also implement XPointers and therefore be able to support XLink (because XLink can be defined as an application of HyTime). Not sure when I'll get the XPointer part of this system working, but probably in the next couple of months. I'll be announcing the alpha version of this tool just as soon as it does something demonstrable (I'm building it for a demo at SGML/XML Europe, so I have to have that much working by May).
