Cross-Reference Element

Use the cross-reference when you want to link to another topic, a file, or an external site.


  • Do not create cross-references to maps. The publishing engines may render such links incorrectly.
  • Do not place links in the middle of a sentence. Instead, place them at the end of the sentence as a supplemental reference.


All content must be organized into respective topics. Each topic should be self-contained. For more information, see Topic Types.
