Hi Denise,

This is one of the tags (and descriptions) binheritedb from JATS.
Apologies if I am misunderstanding your question, but under the Remarks, there
is some further description:
bLong Description Contents: This element was originally designed to contain
a description, but some newer systems expect this element to contain a URI
that points to such a description.b

So, the element can contain this long description, but could also contain a
URI that points to that long description.

Please let me know if I am misunderstanding your question.

Please be patient with me, I have another question:

I read in the element description of <long-desc> that: "Best Practice is to
incorporate a textual description, including or ending with an untagged URI,
and repeat the URI in the
/xlink-href.html> attribute so that a link can be made."

What I don't see is what it should link TO. And if, as I guess, it should link
to a textual description, where should that description be? It seems logical
that it should be part of the XML of the document, because if it is not it
won't be transmitted with the document. But ... where. And tagged how? And if
NOT part of the document, then where should it be and how will people know to
point to it?

Thank you.
