Chunking HTML outputMay 7, 2010 at 6:42 pmParticipants 1Replies 2Last Activity 12 years, 4 months ago
This is with XMetaL 5.1.
I have three subtopics under a topic that I want to chunk into one HTML file. I have the following set in the XML, but it still doesn't product a chunk of output:
Is there an ANT parm to turn on chunking?
Thanks.Derek Read May 7, 2010 at 11:43 pm

The DITA OT bundled with XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0 (which is DITA OT 184.108.40.206) supports this as far as the deliverable type “Multiple HTML” is concerned (in my testing). No special parameters need to be turned on in this case. Note that I assume your XML construction is actually like this (if I assume correctly, you are missing the closing tag in the snippet you posted):
[Note: In pure DITA OT terms “Multiple HTML” is referred to as the “xhtml transtype” in case you wish to check the DITA OT project at SourceForge.]
If anything, I would suspect that the version of the DITA OT installed with XMetaL Author Enterprise 5.1 did not have the same level of support for chunking that 220.127.116.11 does. That would not be too surprising as we initially shipped that version in March 2008 and a number of improvements were made at the SourceForge project between 1.4 and 18.104.22.168.Derek Read May 7, 2010 at 11:46 pm

A long list of “chunk” related issues was addressed 2007+. If one of them was this particular limitation I guess it was either fixed or implemented.
