Subsection 4.9.7 Cross-References in Display Mathematics

A cross-reference is achieved with the <xref> element, see Section 3.4. You can place an <xref> inside a <mrow>, and remarkably, it will do the right thing. This is one of only two XML elements you can mix-in with syntax. A typical use is to provide a justification or explanation for a step in a proof, derivation, or simplification. And it works best with alignment, see below.
