Reply to: Change Bars Show in Single Topic Output but not in Map Output

The version of the DITA OT we include with XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0 (DITA OT version 1.4.2.1) still has this limitation (as does the version we included with 5.1 and 5.5 which was 1.4.1).

Processing Instructions (all PIs in general, not just those used for XMetaL's Change Tracking) are inside the *_MERGED_intermed.xml file but gone by the time *_MERGED.xml has been created. The *_MERGED.xml file is created by the DITA OT and used by it as input to generate the FO and it the FO creation part of the process you are altering when you change the XSLT files (ie: it's too late by then as the PIs are already gone).

I assume this means these fix(es) must be included in one of the 1.5.x releases of the DITA OT, for which we currently do not have an integration yet.
