Sub-document addressing is not a hard problem for SGML documents. Have
a look at the TEI schemes, or perhaps the HyTime schemes.

Can someone provide a URL for the online TEI specs?

Also, have a look at <URL:> for a server that has
sub-document adressing capabilities based on the SGML tree structure.
