According to the Bugzilla search results for “xlink”, WebKit already seems to support XLink — but only in SVG documents. I propose that it should be allowed in any XML document; then, no munging to XHTML (e.g. with XSLT) would be required for an XML document with CSS stylesheet to be rendered as-is in WebKit.

Currently it is not possible to get any hyperlinks in pure XML documents without mixing with XHTML because there are no CSS extensions like Opera's -o-link and no xlink support. This is a serious limitation.

Would it be possible for you to provide a simple test case for this?

Bugzilla has experienced amnesia today, here is a comment that was lost: --- Comment #3 from Thom <email@example.com> 2009-08-20 12:34:53 PDT --- http://www.snee.com/xml/xlink/sxlinkdemo.xml is an xml document that's used to showcase mozilla's xLink support, which is better, but also poor.
