I note that my use of <link
isn't being translated into page numbers.
As that section says, link elements don't generate page
numbers. I suspect it because link text is
arbitrary and page number references may not
fit in. Seems like it could be an option, however.
Since the id of the target is available, it wouldn't be
hard to get the page number Bob, but I don't think it would
be much use, since I've provided the text for the link.
I found that moving the id value to the parent
resolved the links.
Is there any guidance (tdg perhaps?) as to what makes good / bad
endpoints for links?
Hmm, not that I know of. According to the DTD, any
element with an ID can logically be the end point
of a cross reference. So it comes down to what
the stylesheets actually support.
Less bothered about that, since I'm using xep with hot links
(how to make them visible?)
yes. I'm hoping its a param.
There is an attribute set named 'xref.properties'
that you can use. It is applied to link, olink,
ulink, and xref text in FO output.
