Managing XML references through the XRM vocabulary
XML References Management (XRM) is a method and vocabulary for formalizing knowledge about the types of links found in a given family of XML documents (i.e., in an XML document type). With such formalized knowledge in hand, instances of the document type are amenable to automated link verification, and to transformation and derivation with predictable and desirable results. The XRM approach allows link description (the definition of link types in terms of the contexts in which they appear), link validation description (the properties of valid instances of each type of link), and link translation description (the rules that should govern transformations and derivations).
