RDA-159 Change linking practice for cross references to a range of instructions

Use Case

In RDA Toolkit, a cross-reference to another instruction is a hyperlink with a label consisting of the instruction number followed by an RDA "button". The button is part of the hyperlink. This becomes inconsistent when the cross-reference is to a range of instructions, for example 6.28.1.9–6.28.1.11 RDA (from 6.28.4.4). This is actually two hyperlinks: "6.28.1.9", and "6.28.1.11 RDA". This presumably will confuse many users, who click the RDA button and expect to be taken to the first instruction in the range; instead the link is to the last instruction.
