Reply to: can’t insert specialized topics into a map – resolved

I had the same problem with MathML specialization.
And tracked the cause to be in file
  C:Program FilesXMetaL 6.0AuthorDITAXACsdita_xac_catalog_specialized.xml

A value entered in dialog Tools.Select_DITA specialization is appended to this file as a new element.
Strangely, there were literal “nt” strings embedded (Viewed with Notepad++).
This is what i found:

nt-//DESSCI//DTD DITA with MathML Composite//ENntdita_mathmlntDitaDocHandlerntditabasenn

I removed all “nt” , et voila, adding the specialized topic to the ditamap was now enabled!

I recently upgraded to Xmetal 6.0.2.070 which does not not seem to accept these spurious strings. Although it should neatly handle only the xml elements.
