Epub reference types

Copied from the IDPF's EPUB2.0 spec:

The required type attribute describes the publication component referenced by the href attribute. The values for the type attributes must be selected from the list defined below when applicable. Other types may be used when none of the predefined types are applicable; their names must begin with the string other.. The value for the type attribute is case-sensitive.

The following list of type values is derived from the 13th edition of the Chicago Manual of Style:
