<refpurpose>Use the language of target when generating cross-reference text?</refpurpose>

<para>If non-zero, the language of the target will be used when
generating cross reference text. Usually, the <quote>current</quote>
language is used when generating text (that is, the language of the
element that contains the cross-reference element). But setting this parameter
allows the language of the element <emphasis>pointed to</emphasis> to control
the generated text.</para>

<para>Consider the following example:</para>

<programlisting>&lt;para lang="en"&gt;See also &lt;xref linkend="chap3"/&gt;.&lt;/para&gt;

<para>Suppose that Chapter 3 happens to be written in German.
If <parameter>l10n.gentext.use.xref.language</parameter> is non-zero, the
resulting text will be something like this:</para>

<para>See also Kapital 3.</para>

<para>Where the more traditional rendering would be:</para>

<para>See also Chapter 3.</para>
