 Inherited Models
 ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
 
-If you have a model that is defined using an `abstract base class`_, you don't
-have to do anything special to serialize that model. Just call the serializer
-on the object (or objects) that you want to serialize, and the output will be
-a complete representation of the serialized object.

+serialize, and the output will be a complete representation of the serialized
+object.
 
-However, if you have a model that uses `multi-table inheritance`_, you also

+However, if you have a model that uses :ref:`multi-table inheritance
+<multi-table-inheritance>`, you also need to serialize all of the base classes
+for the model. This is because only the fields that are locally defined on the
+model will be serialized. For example, consider the following models::
 
-	class Place(models.Model):
-		name = models.CharField(max_length=50)
+    class Place(models.Model):
+        name = models.CharField(max_length=50)
 
-	class Restaurant(Place):
-		serves_hot_dogs = models.BooleanField()
+    class Restaurant(Place):
+        serves_hot_dogs = models.BooleanField()
 
 If you only serialize the Restaurant model::
 
-	data = serializers.serialize('xml', Restaurant.objects.all())
+    data = serializers.serialize('xml', Restaurant.objects.all())
 
 the fields on the serialized output will only contain the `serves_hot_dogs`
 attribute. The `name` attribute of the base class will be ignored.
 In order to fully serialize your Restaurant instances, you will need to
 serialize the Place models as well::
 
-	all_objects = list(Restaurant.objects.all()) + list(Place.objects.all())
-	data = serializers.serialize('xml', all_objects)
-
-.. _abstract base class: http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/model-api/#abstract-base-classes
-.. _multi-table inheritance: http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/model-api/#multi-table-inheritance
+    all_objects = list(Restaurant.objects.all()) + list(Place.objects.all())
+    data = serializers.serialize('xml', all_objects)
