James's suggestion makes sense if you are creating your own authority file.
In case you want to refer to authority file records that already exist,
keep in mind that authority files are increasingly being exposed through
URIs, allowing you to reference a particular authority record. So you
could reference this record in the ref= attribute on <author>, <editor>,
<name>, etc. If you want to refer to more than one such authority
record, you can either insert more than one URI within ref= (each
separated by a space character).
Alternatively, you can use the <idno> element as a child of <author>,
<editor>, <name>, etc. This element may contain a URI or identifier for
an authority record, perhaps with a type= attribute to tell them apart
from each other.
Examples of these uses have recently been added to the SourceForge
source of the Guidelines and will be included in the next release of the
