Hi James, 
I'm working my way backwards in this thread, sorry! 
Yes, I want to use a <bibl>, but I also need to link this <bibl> to a full bibliographic entry, and <bibl> does not have @target or @ref. 
I don't like putting the @ref on <title only inside the <bibl>
Also, semantically, it's more of a <ref>, isn't it?

Hi Marjorie,

Isn't what you want then to use <bibl> in the text then?

             <bibl type="ref">
                 <title ref="bibl.xml#toto">Shortened Title</title>
                 <citedRange unit="page">16-23</citedRange>

The citation is really to the title, hence putting @ref on 
<title>. If it was on the <bibl> it would be a reference to this 
particular citation including the citedRange, etc. which seems 
misleading to me.

I also want the short bibliographic reference to be linked somehow to the full one in the bibliography.
