Reply to: Wrestling with Conrefs

As Gunnar said above, you can't have a conref that spans multiple paragraphs in DITA 1.1, and using reusable components won't solve this limitation. Your best bet is probably to conref in each paragraph one at at time. For the example above with product A, B, and C, you could also use conditional text, but I'm sure you've already thought of that.

If you still want to create a template for creating reusable components, this post provides additional detail to what Derek said: http://forums.xmetal.com/index.php?topic=284.0
