The data-dfn-for attribute links a WebIDL attribute or method to a definition.

The following example automatically links up the bar attribute and the doTheFoo() method to the Foo interface.

<section data-dfn-for="Foo" data-link-for="Foo">
  <h2><code>Foo</code> interface</h2>
  <pre class="idl">
  interface Foo {
    attribute Bar bar;
    void doTheFoo();
  <p>The <dfn>Foo</dfn> interface is nice. Lets you do stuff.</p>
  <p>The <dfn>bar</dfn> attribute, returns 🍺.</p>
  <p>The <dfn>doTheFoo()</dfn> method, returns nothing.</p>
