Use <dfn class="export"> to export a definition to W3C's Webref database.

  • Your spec needs to be part of the browser specs to be indexed by Webref.
  • Only export things that other specifications need! (e.g., special objects, specific algorithms).
  • WebIDL things are automatically exported for you.
<p>The <dfn class="export">fancy thing</dfn> can be used by other specs.</p>

Then other specs can use "fancy thing" using xref, like so:

  var respecConfig = {
    xref: true,

<p data-cite="spec-shortname">
  We can now link to <a>fancy thing</a> in another spec.
