Can DITA topics contain multiple internal links?

Indeed, DITA topics can contain multiple internal links, allowing for rich interconnections between different sections within the same topic. This capability enhances the document’s comprehensibility and enables readers to explore related content seamlessly. These links can be especially beneficial in complex or lengthy topics, where various sections need to reference each other to provide a holistic understanding.

Here’s an example of how a DITA topic can contain multiple internal links:

<!-- Example: Multiple Internal Links -->
<p>In this topic, we will explore several concepts related to DITA XML.</p>
<p>To learn more about topic-based authoring, refer to <xref href="topic-authoring.dita" format="Topic Authoring"/>.</p>
<p>For a detailed explanation of DITA maps, check out <xref href="dita-maps.dita" format="DITA Maps"/>.</p>
<p>You can find information about reusing content in <xref href="content-reuse.dita" format="Content Reuse"/>.</p>

In this example, the DITA topic contains multiple <xref> elements that link to different sections within the same topic. Each link connects the reader to a specific section with a meaningful title, aiding their navigation and comprehension of the topic’s content.
