<tbx:xGraphic> External Graphic (TBX)

The <tbx:xGraphic> element is a hyperlinking element that points, through the @xtarget attribute, to a graphic file that is in an external document. Examples of “external graphics” include non-textual (non-verbal) representations such as a graphic, table, or media object such as a video or sound file


Best Practice

In general, <tbx:xGraphic> elements should not replace a definition but complement it, except in domains or subjects in which nonverbal representations are conventionally used instead of a definition


Typically, this element will be rendered in the published text with the label “See: ” before it. The element content should contain the desired display text of the link. For example:
<tbx:xGraphic xtarget="http://www.example.com/graphic.html">Picture of a circuit board</tbx:xGraphic>


The required @xtarget attribute will hold the URI for the actual link.
