<extrefloc> Extended Reference Location

<extrefloc> is an empty element used to designate the location of a <ref> that is a resource in an extended link. It may occur within <daogrp> and <linkgrp>. For more information about linking elements, see the linking elements page.


  • ALTRENDER – not required. Use if the content of the element should be displayed or printed differently than the rendering established in a style sheet for other occurrences of the element.
  • AUDIENCE – not required. Use to set whether the element’s contents will be visible to external users or to internal ones. Possible values are: “internal” and “external.”
  • ID – not required. Creates an ID for element. Can be used for linking.
  • HREF – not required. The locator for a remote resource in a simple or extended link. An HREF takes the form of a Uniform Resource Identifier (URI). If no URI is specified, the locator is assumed to be within the document that contains the linking element.
  • LABEL – not required. May use a related name token.
  • LINKTYPE – fixed. Value must be “simple.”
  • ROLE – not required. Information that explains to application software the part that a remote resource plays in a link.
  • TARGET – not required. Points to the ID of another element. Must be an ID reference.
  • TITLE – not required. A viewable caption.
  • XPOINTER – not required. The locator for a remote resource in a simple or locator link. The XPOINTER attribute takes the form of a Uniform Resource Identifier plus a reference, formulated in XPOINTER syntax, to a sub-resource of the remote resource. XPOINTER enables linking to specific sections of a document that are relative, i.e., based on their position in the document or their content, rather than by reference to a specific identifier such as an ID.


<extrefloc> may contain PCDATA as well as <abbr>, <address>, <archref>, <bibref>, <blockquote>, <chronlist>, <corpname>, <date>, <emph>, <expan>, <extptr>, <famname>, <function>, <genreform>, <geogname>, <lb />, <list>, <name>, <note>, <num>, <occupation>, <origination>, <persname>, <ptr>, <repository>, <subject>, <table>, <unitdate>, and <unittitle>.
