Oh, I see! I'm very glad you've provided this background because styling elements according to their otherprops values is actually much easier than searching. You can do it by configuring the Conditional Text feature as follows:

1) In Notepad, open the ct_config.xml file from C:Program FilesXMetaL 6.0AuthorConditional Textconfigs
2) Add the following code immediately before the tag:



3) Save the ct_config.xml file.
4) Restart XMetaL.

After doing the above, you will be able to use the Reuse > Style Conditional Text dialog to apply highlight colors or text colors to elements with the “foo” and “bar” otherprops values. You can also use the Reuse > Apply/Remove Conditions dialog box to apply your otherprops values.
