The type xsd:IDREF is used for an attribute that references an ID. All attributes of type xsd:IDREF must reference an xsd:ID in the same XML document. A common use case for xsd:IDREF is to create a cross-reference to a particular section of a document. Like ID, an xsd:IDREF value must be an NCName.
