For topic references, image references, and other link relationships, resources can be indirectly addressed by using the keyref attribute. For content reference relationships, resources can be indirectly addressed by using the conkeyref attribute.
For references to topics, maps, and non-DITA resources, the value of the keyref attribute is simply a key name (for example, keyref="topic-key").
For references to non-topic elements within topics, the value of the keyref attribute is a key name, a slash ("/"), and the ID of the target element (for example, keyref="topic-key/some-element-id".)
<topic id="topicid"> <title>Example referenced topic</title> <body> <section id="section-01">Some content.</section> </body> </topic>and this key definition:
<map> <topicref keys="myexample" href="file.dita" /> </map>
A cross reference of the form keyref="myexample/section-01" resolves to the section element in the topic. The key reference is equivalent to the URI reference xref="file.dita#topicid/section-01".
