Linking elements in a document

Is there a 'better' way to link elements in a XML 
document ?. - XLL is one option.  

I looked up the 1.0 specs, and got the feeling that
using ID and IDREFS in the DTDs is one simple
method to do this.

I was wondering if i could do: 

<user name="user1/>
<user name="user2"/>
<group name="group1">
<user> LINK to user1 </user>
<user> LINK to user2 </user>

Am looking for an easy method to
do this - so that I can access the users
through a DOM tree by using the 'link'. 
Any possibilities ?.
