Reply to: Specializing the DITA "props" attribute

In case you do specialization for topic and attributes you can store a single set of files where open toolkit is:
  C:Program FilesCommon FilesXMetaL SharedDITA_OTyour-specialization-folder (or dtd)
You tell XMetaL that your specialized dtd is located over there. And even the default dtds can be redirected to this folder to get rid of the “keep in sync”.

Any XMetaL specialist listening that knows why we need two sets of DTDs? Of course, the toolkit needs them, but why is XMetaL not reusing them?

BTW: we found a problem with base attribute for some elements as defined in XMetaL's version of DITA 1.1. We went back to the OASIS standard and use DTDs in OT folder only.
