ID/IDREF in Arbortext 6.0 using a namespaced link element

Long story: Nah, you don't want to hear it.

Short story:
I'm trying to create an ID/IDREF link in FOSI.

I have defined my link element in the DTD with an attribute to store the
target element's ID value as an IDREF attribute.
I have placed that element in the appropriate locations within the content
model.
I have added that element to the DCF as a link (both as primary="yes" and
as primary="no" ... not at the same time, of course).
I have copied FOSI code working in 5.3 and updated it to reflect this
element's name.

But my links don't "fire." I get all the right text, except for the element
number, but the text is not a link.

For example, my output should be:
Table 1A Table title goes here

And it should be clickable in the PDF.

Instead I get:
Table XXX-1234 Table title goes here.

And it is not clickable.

Wrinkle-time: The element is namespaced. So it is: xxxx:linkelementname. I
have placed the namespace declaration in the DTD.

What am I forgetting?! Or is this not possible with a namespaced element?

Oh crud. Friday.

The answer would be: TYPO!

When will I learn to copy/paste?
