If true, then the target of a this link is called a "topic link" and gets treated specially, pointing to an external OurBigBook Web topic rather than a header defined in the current project.
For example, when rendering a static website, a link such as:
\x[Albert Einstein]{topic}
would produce output similar to:
\a[https://ourbigbook.com/go/topic/john-smith][John Smith]
\x[Albert Einstein]{topic}
which renders as:
This allows static website creators to easily link to topics they might not have already written about which others may have covered.
The OurBigBook Web instance linked to can be configured with host.
Those links also work on OurBigBook Web rendering of course, and point to the current Web instance.
