>                 Key: JXR-10
>                 URL:
>             Project: Maven JXR
>          Issue Type: Improvement
>          Components: jxr
>            Reporter: Laurent Caillette
>            Priority: Minor
> I want to reference source code from XDoc. By now I'm writing a link like this:
> <a href="./../xref/com/acme/foo/Foo.html#127">method here</a>
> The problem is, my link can lead to a wrong place just after a few cosmetic changes in
source code. Of course, automatic link check will not guess the link went wrong.
> It would be nice to generate named anchors in XRef the same way Javadoc does, supporting
a link like this from XDoc:
> <a href="./../xref/com/acme/foo/Foo.html#bar(Object)">method here</a>
> Another way to achieve the same result would be to parse Java comments to find a special
expression to be transformed in a named anchor, but the Javadoc way seems more straightforward.
