8.5.53 @glyph-data Glyph Data Character Being Referenced

An IDREF-type attribute that points to the @id attribute of the <glyph-data> character inside a <private-char> element. The idea is to use the full <glyph-data> with its name and bitmap once, then point to an existing character instead of defining the entire <glyph-data> element repeatedly.

In element <glyph-ref>, this attribute may be used if the element is used.
Value Meaning
An identifier (IDREF) The pointing uses the ID/IDREF mechanism, using the @glyph-data attribute of the <glyph-ref> element to point to the @id attribute of an existing <glyph-data> element.
