[jats-list] checking URIs
I am interested in checking all URIs in JATS files. Well, not all URIs.
I am happy to ignore a URI that might for some reason be mentioned in
the prose of the article, but I'm interested in any actionable URIs,
even relative URIs giving the location of, say, a graphic.
Given that scope ...
a) Is it true that all such URIs are found in @xlink:html? Are there
any other attributes whose value is a URI? Or possibly an element whose
content is supposed to be a URI?
b) Do people have suggestions on whether it's better to test that they
resolve (a link checker), testing for well-formedness as a URI, or both?
That is, does anyone know of URIs that resolve using some software but
which aren't valid according to RFC 3986? If so, for preservation
purposes, I think I would want to catch these.
