Cross Reference

The <tbx:crossReference> element is a hyperlinking element that points to the location of another term in the same document, usually a related term (such as an antonym or homonym). This element is repeatable; so you can include as many cross references to terms as you need in an entry.


Content: The content of the <tbx:crossReference> element is the display text of the link.
Display: In the rendered output, the content of this elements is typically prepended with the label Related term:.
(Note: Do not use a formulation such as “Note: See ...” for an internal cross-reference to another term, use this <tbx:crossReference> element.)

Related Elements

External Cross Reference: A <tbx:crossReference> can only occur at the <tbx:langSet> level, whereas an <tbx:externalCrossReference> can occur at either the <tbx:langSet> or the <tbx:termEntry> level. The @target attribute is optional for <tbx:crossReference>, and the @xtarget attribute mandatory for <tbx:externalCrossReference>
Cross Reference inside Definition or Example: A <tbx:crossReference> cannot be embedded into a definition or an example. For that purpose, use <tbx:entailedTerm>.
