Re: metadata question

Hi Bruce,

I tried the xlink attributes in the Metadata element but I could not get it to work for some reason.
What is it that is not working? Is there a problem with the TDS's HTML representation of the catalog? Or is it some other THREDDS client like the IDV or the netCDF ToolsUI?
Well... I was looking at the docs again this morning and came across this form the catalog spec for the metadata element:

"It may also contain an XLink to another XML document, whose top-level element should be a valid metadata element (see example below). Note it should not link to an HTML page, use the documentation <http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/projects/THREDDS/tech/catalog/InvCatalogSpec.html#documentation> element instead."

So it appears that I'm stuck using the documentation tag. Is it possible to use a standard HTML anchor to provide a link, or do I have to use the xlink attributes?

The only place in the catalog that explicitly accepts XHTML is in the documentation element. But I'm not sure how you want to use this link. So, I'm not sure if that is appropriate.

Can you explain what you are linking to, why it is appropriate for metadata but not documentation, and what it would mean for it to work?

Sorry this is more question than answer.
