All in HTML unless otherwise noted.
Slides from talk "RDF: Store Metadata about Anything, Anywhere" for the Washington D.C. Users Group on March 15, 2006.

Bob's O'Reilly weblog is devoted to linking-related topics. One posting discusses a backlinking trick, so I added the link in this sentence to make it easier to demonstrate from the weblog posting (that is, clicking the "backlink" while in the weblog posting shows that this page links to it).
A demo of how to use XSLT to prototype 1-to-many link markup--in this case, using nested a elements.
April 2002 XML.com article XLink: Who Cares analyses the lack of XLink activity.
demo of Mozilla's support of XLink simple links. You'll need Mozilla or a Mozilla-based browser like Doczilla for this to work.
A semi-scientific study of what attributes of the HTML a attribute real people actually use.
XML Linking page at Robin Cover's XML home page
XLink/XPointer Tools page at www.xmlsoftware.com.
I was going to include more XLink links here, but the xmlsoftware.com page and Robin's page cover anything else I might have added...
demo of downloading a table into a spreadsheet program like Excel. Nothing to do with XML, actually.
sample documents for testing Google's crawling of XML documents.
A DTD Normalizer written in Python (no knowledge of Python required).
A proposal for managing variant schemas used for multiple stages in a document pipeline.
Latest revision of the XML FAQ quotes Snee XML Televangelist Bob DuCharme several times!
More of Bob's XML and SGML work.
Robin Cover's XML (and SGML) page. The best single source. Nonprofit and comprehensive. If you're curious about some XML-related acronym and want to know what's up with it, Robin will probably have a whole page of stuff on it. His site is also searchable.
xmlsoftware.com The best starting point to check out any available software, free or otherwise (also leads to software for XML-related specs like XSLT).
W3C Technical Recommendations All the official specs.
The XML FAQ Good starting point for anybody.
xmlinfo's newcomers page has many good references.
