    Configuring cascading metadata for WebHelp

    We use XMetal 8.0, and are interested in setting up cascading metadata (specifying metadata in a map and having it cascade to the topics). After reading the information in the DITA 1.2 spec (http://docs.oasis-open.org/dita/v1.2/os/spec/archSpec/cascading-in-a-ditamap.html), I tried an experiment, but it didn't seem to work.

    Our current topic prologs look like this:

    job=”programming” experiencelevel=”general”/>   My Product Name  


      All   Security

    As a test I removed the prolog from the topic files, and added the following to the online map:

      My Product

    All Studio

    But when I generated the WebHelp, the metadata was not copied to the topics in the output.

    Is there another setting or configuration I'm missing?
