@keyref attribute enables authors to specify that references to
keywords or terms in a DITA topic can be rendered as a link to an associated resource.
In this scenario, a company with well-developed glossary wants to ensure that instances of a term that is defined in the glossary always include a link to the glossary topic.
An information architect adds values for the
@keys attribute to all the of
<topicref> elements that are in the DITA map for the glossary, for
<map> <title>Company-wide glossary</title> <topicref keys="term-1" href="term-1.dita"/> <topicref keys="term-2" href="term-2.dita"/> <topicref keys="term-3" href="term-3.dita"/> <topicref keys="term-4" href="term-4.dita"/> </map>
When authors refer to a term in a topic, they use the following mark-up:
<term> element is rendered, the content is provided
<title> element of the glossary topic. The
<term> element also is rendered as a
link to the glossary topic.
