The <navref> element represents a pointer to another map which should be preserved as a transcluding link rather than resolved. Output formats that support such linking will integrate the referenced resource when displaying the referencing map to an end user.
For example, if a map is converted to the Eclipse help system format, the DITA element <navref mapref="other.ditamap"/> should be converted to the Eclipse element <link toc="other.xml"/>. When Eclipse loads the referencing map, it will replace this link element with the contents of the file "other.xml", provided that the file "other.xml" is available.
<topicref href="other.ditamap" format="ditamap"/>
