Returns the mapping over nl of the function on a node that returns the value
that the node exhibits for the property referent or an empty node-list if
the node does not exhibit a value or exhibits a null value for referent.
[hacked from ISO 10179 10.2.3]

The property referent is defined in the SGML Property Set [ISO 10179 9.6 or] as:
<propdef irefnode rcsnm=referent datatype=node ac=element cn=attvaltk
<when>Declared value is IDREF or IDREFS.

I don't know if (referent nl) is implemented in [Open]Jade. I greped Norm's
Modular DocBook style sheets and found that he did not find an occasion to
use it. 

Hope this helps, David
