longquoteref

Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Version 1.2

The <longquoteref> element provides a reference to the source of a long quote. The long quote (<lq>) element itself allows an href attribute to specify the source of a quote, but it does not allow other standard linking attributes such as keyref, scope, and format. The <longquoteref> element should be used for references that make use of these attributes.

Rendering of this element is left up to DITA processors. Depending on the presentation format, it may be appropriate to ignore the element, present it as a link, use it to turn the entire quote into a link, or do something else.
