From XML Linking Language (XLink) (2001-06-27) | Glossary for this source

An application traversing to the ending resource should load its presentation in place of the presentation of the starting resource. This is similar to the effect achieved by the following HTML fragment:<IMG SRC="" ALT=":-)">The presentation of the starting resource typically does not consist of an entire document; it would be the entire document only when the root element of the document is a simple link. Thus, embedding typically has an effect distinct from replacing.Just as for the HTML IMG element, embedding affects only the presentation of the relevant resources; it does not dictate permanent transformation of the starting resource. Put another way, when an embedded XLink is processed, the result of styling the ending resource of the link is merged into the result of styling the resource into which it is embedded. By contrast, when a construct such as an XInclude element is resolved, the original XML is actually transformed to include the referenced content.The behavior of conforming XLink applications when embedding XML-based ( or ) ending resources is not defined in this version of this specification.The presentation of embedded resources is application dependent.
