Hi Karin,

The problem could be either with your document or with the DITA Open Toolkit files. I suggest first trying to generate output using a different document, such as the sample files that you can access through the Help menu.

If those files have the same problem, you can usually get a fresh copy of the DITA Open Toolkit in XMetaL 5.5 or later as follows:
1) Back up the following folder, then delete it: C:Documents and SettingsApplication DataSoftQuadXMetaL Shared
2) Generate output again. The copy of the Open Toolkit that is in C:Program FilesCommon FilesXMetaL Shared will be automatically copied to the Documents and Settings folder, and XMetaL will use that copy when generating output.

If you haven't made any changes to your C:Program FilesCommon FilesXMetaL Shared folder, and if you haven't changed your xmetal.ini settings since you installed XMetaL, this should work. If not, please let us know.
