Specifying nhrefs as lists

A Balisage attendee suggested as an alternative to specify nhrefs as lists instead of this arguably ugly set of links in angle brackets.

This could work nicely if these links were originally shown as footnotes (or bibliography entries if you prefer) and linked from the nhrefs source.

The scenario could be the following:

  • The source would link (using a classical (X)HTML <a/> link) to the list defining the arcs identified by an id.
  • The arcs would be defined in a list with the matching id using the same markup as described in my presentation.
  • The JavaScript? would be adapted so that the link to the list is replaced by a popup menu like it is currently.

The benefit of this suggestion is that the page is much more readable when not processed by JavaScript?.

The impact on the specification seems minimal, the only difficulty I can think of is to represent embedded links.
