For example, if your FrameMaker file contains a cross-reference to another file, when you save your file in XML, FrameMaker generates tags representing the cross-reference along with information about the referenced file. When opening the same XML file, FrameMaker converts the cross-reference tags and the information they contain into a FrameMaker cross-reference.
FrameMaker supports a new attribute, srcfile, to retain external cross-reference information when generating XML documents.
When you export a file containing an external cross-reference to XML, the srcfile attribute of the cross-reference contains the name of the referenced file and the ID of the referenced element in the file.
note: FrameMaker converts file paths in the generated XML to URIs.
