ALinks are also used in Windows 95/NT (WinHELP 4) help files. I believe that

IRQ is the acronym for Interrupt ReQuest. This refers to the way in which
the hardware devices in a PC signal to the CPU that they need attention.

I believe that this is the acronym for Microsoft Internet Mail Extensions
