Links must provide a target, so one of the following attributes must be defined: "url", "document", "target-id", "resource", or "version".


Starting with version 0.6, the CNXML language does not permit URLs that contain ampersand (&) characters (i.e., Check all URLs and replace any ampersands with the entity reference "&amp;". More information can be found on the W3C's page.
