Profile: external-link

Profile Schema

An external-link document contains a link to an external document.


The external-link profile specifies a required attribute externalLink; this will be a link object linking to an external page. This link must use the http:// or https:// scheme and should have no rels values.

It also specifies two optional attributes:

  • linkText - Text that should be used to display this link
  • linkLabel - DEPRECATED - Text that should be displayed contextually, in addition to the link itself
