Posted on 2005-03-05
Hi im trying to learn XML im very much a beginner :
Im trying to understand the concept and usage of IDREFs in XML. I belive there is also ID, IDREF and IDREFS. Im not sure if they can be used to uniquely identify something, but i would like to use this, if i could understand how it works ( i am also using a DTD ).
Would it please be possible for someone to explain what ID, IDREF and IDREFS is and if possible with examples explain why they would be used or how they could be used in XML.
