Request: Add subelements to let the user
specify the appropriate format for the
context of the text generated by the xref.
(This request for a DTD change parallels
the short-term request for an XSL feature
Rationale: Different text should be generated
in different contexts. The full, quoted title
is appropriate in some contexts but the page
number is appropriate in others.
Use Case: Space is limited in the context
(for instance, in a table) or multiple targets
are being listed, so the full title is not necessary.
Possible Approach: Allow optional content
within an xref that includes a format
subelement. The format subelement can
contain a list of fields for the generated text:
See the parallel XSL feature request 451011
for possible fields including the termination field.
