   Something important is still missing, the support for cross ref
   within nodes, to @float or @anchor.  For that you need to associate a
   normalized label to the position in the node.  There should also be a
   table associating normalized labels to nodes, for external

   Normalized labels are unique strings associated with node names.
   They are used for HTML cross references, but are useful in other
   contexts too, I think you should also use that.  You don't need to
   say much about those strings except that they are uniquely associated
   to labels.  They are described in 'HTML Xref'.  They are not
   available in the crossref commands in XML for now, but I think they
   should be.  They are associated to the label commands already.

OK, i'll work on that for IXIN 1.5.  (BTW, IXIN 1.4 is now available.)

Also on my mind now are internal references, to replace indexed items
(nodes, dts, floats, images (maybe)) w/ a "INIX reference", using a
"INIX coordinate'.  For example, in d/ixin.ixin node 1, instead of:

 (indexterm (@ (index "cp")) "origin, idea")

we could have

 (ixref (@ (ixcoord "(dts cp 24)")))

which denotes DTS ‘cp’, entry 24 (line 109).  Generally, the value of an
‘ixcoord’ attribute is a list (in string form, to be proper SXML) that
specifies, from most general to most specific, the particular indexed
object.  The last element is always a non-negative integer.  E.g.:

 (node 0)           ; Top node
 (floset Figure 1)  ; second entry of the ‘Figure’ floset
 (blob image 0)     ; logo

The last example is tentative only, as i'm not sure the best way to
handle images (see IXIN 1.4 README for options and current approach).

Anyway, there are a bunch of ‘???’ now in the spec doc.  If you have any
thoughts on those, i'd very much appreciate hearing them.
