Thanks for all the links and explainations.
I beginning to understand that in order to get the desired look and feel that I want in the output, I need to edit the DTD and also the css, which are found in the folders:

C:Program FilesCommon FilesXMetaL SharedDITA_OTdtd
C:Program FilesCommon FilesXMetaL SharedDITA_OTcss

Am i right?

If you are working with a DTD and need to make XMetaL customization, you should probably create an XMetaL Document Customization for that DTD you are working with.  I don't want to be one of those people that say “go read this it's all in there”, but do take some time to skim over and read the XMetaL customization guide and programmers guide.  Lots of good info in there specific to XMetaL customizations.

That is pretty much where I started when I first got thrown into the world of XML, DTD and XMetaL customizations.  All the guides (customization, programmers, xft, and author) have much of the needed information for one to get jump started in XMetaL customizations. 

Correct me if I'm wrong 🙂  I'm just happy to see that the XMetaL staff are very responsive in these forums!
