Internal link in Mermaid with defined link instead of node text

Use case or problem

In Mermaid it’s possible to create a node that links to a file, for example:

flowchart TB
node("Example")
class node internal-link;

However with the method it seems like you can only link to the full text of the node.

I was wondering if there was a way to have a display text, and a file separately.

Example / Proposed solution

Example 1:

flowchart TB
node("This is an example||example")
class node internal-link;

Example 2:

flowchart TB
node("This is an example")
class node internal-link-Example;

In these examples the text of the node would be “This is an example” - but the link would refer to the “example” file.

I would propose something like the second example, because the first one example messes with vanilla Mermaid and literally displays “This is an example||example”

Current workaround (optional)

The current workaround is to add extra nodes with just the exact text for linking purposes, but it adds extra unnecessary nodes to my diagram

I need this feature too

not pretty and definitely a hack, but this is a workaround:

node["<a class='internal-link is-unresolved' href='path/to/file'>display text</a>"]
