linktext

Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Version 1.2

The <linktext> element provides the literal label or line of text for a link. In most cases, the text of a link can be resolved during processing by cross reference with the target resource. Use the <linktext> element only when the target cannot be reached, such as when it is a peer or external link, or when the target is local but not in DITA format. When used inside a topic, it is used as the text for the specified link; when used within a map, it is used as the text for generated links that point to the specified topic.
