HLink working draft arrives

================================================

The HTML Working Group has published an initial Working Draft of HLink: 
Link Recognition for the XHTML Family, offering an answer to looming 
questions about the role of linking in XHTML.

HLink:
"
provides XHTML Family Members with the ability to specify which 
attributes of elements represent Hyperlinks, and how those hyperlinks 
should be traversed, and extends XLink use to a wider class of languages 
than those restricted to the syntactic style allowed by XLink.
"

HLink addresses a wide range of conflicts between the style of linking 
that XLink mandates and existing XHTML practice, and also provides a 
generic approach to permitting the resolution of such conflicts in any 
XHTML (or perhaps XML) context.

Steven Pemberton, HTML Working Group chair, described a variety of 
situations where the XLink approach may not be optimal. Norm Walsh 
previously summarized a number of issues around XLink. Discussion of 
these issues has appeared on a number of forums, including xml-dev, 
www-html, www-forms, and www-tag.
