OK, now you two are close to having defined a
reasonably complete baseline capability and
backed it up reasonable implementations.
So now it is time for our webmaster to pick 5-8
elements of current bootstrap web site and start a
DKR on the bootstrap web site to allow navigation
within web pages.
As this develops, code sharing should occur and within
a month or so we converge to a single encoding of
this tool.
Please note that each hID and sID link should have
a unique ID. In the published markup, "hID" and "sID"
are CSS classes and ID is a unique "IDREF", so that all links
can be retrieved in a nice list, or individually
I assume that the hID and sID links are decendents
of the info item between the current hID/sID
combination and the previous hID/sID combo.
A main idea is to be able to retrieve a list of these
for use in mapping the DKR contents.

When this gets a little further along, then let's consider
how this markup might work in DKR structures that
might use other ways to display/store information than
