I suggest just showing the text of how to do it,
i.e. not an actual link.

It is non-standard behaviour, but it was used in previous
versions of our DTDs, so we still need to explain how to deal
with it.

Also please remember that there are various copies of
this document: at least in the seed-sample and in site-author,
and perhaps elsewhere now.

We need to minimise their differences and keep them synchronised.
