xlink:href
An <iri> reference either to a <glyph> element in an SVG document or to an <altGlyphDef> element.

If the reference is to a <glyph> element and that glyph is available, then that glyph is rendered instead of the character(s) that are inside of the <altGlyph> element.

If the reference is to an <altGlyphDef> element, then if an appropriate set of alternate glyphs is located from processing the <altGlyphDef> element, then those alternate glyphs are rendered instead of the character(s) that are inside of the <altGlyph> element.
Value type: <iri> ; Default value: none; Animatable: no
