I don't see any checks for outputclass=”landscape” (or any other similar values) in the default DITA OT we include with XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0 (that would be the same for earlier versions too then).

So, I assume Astoria must have some additional logic in their server-side copy of the DITA OT that the standard DITA OT we install (which is version 1.4.2.1 with XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0) does not have.

Keep in mind that you might also be running a different DITA OT transtype in both instances.

XMetaL "deliverable"                  = DITA OT transtype
---------------------------------------------------------
"PDF via FO with default processing"  = pdf
"Book via RenderX"                    = pdf2
"XMetaL Enhanced PDF via RenderX XEP" = pdf3

Also, the DITA OT obtained from SourceForge does not include our “pdf3” transtype.
Astoria can tell you which one of these (or other) that they are running on their server.
