||In our paper we will investigate the possibility of applying the
XML Linking Language (XLink) to time-sensitive applications. In timesensitive
applications fragments of documents are to be composed on fly
to form a time-dependent document assembly. The multiple linking mechanism
specified by the W3C’s XML Linking Language is one way to approach
the time-sensitivity problem in wired and wireless applications. Links with
multiple endpoints connect not only two but also a set of related nodes.
When a user initiates a link with multiple endpoints, he/she can be requested
to choose between the available options or automatically shown
the most decent destination defined by the user’s time profile. We also introduce
scenarios for time-sensitive applications.
