Reply to: DITA specialization – How to use the highlighting domain

I don't believe our documentation talks about how to create a specialized DITA DTD other than to refer people to the DITA Architectural Specification. It would be interesting to know what you have read that would suggest this so we can remove that from the documentation.

If the DITA Architectural Specification is difficult to get through there are lots of resources that try to help understand it. There is a page here that points to a lot of other resources:
http://www.ditausers.org/tutorials/specialization/

In particular, I like the one written by Eliot Kimber, also linked to from that page. It is located here: http://www.xiruss.org/tutorials/dita-specialization/

There is a page in the DITA Arch Spec that specifically talks about the differences between structural and domain specialization here that may also be of use (if you do not wish to read the whole spec): http://docs.oasis-open.org/dita/v1.0/archspec/infodom.html
