Configuring cascading metadata for WebHelpMay 16, 2014 at 12:44 pmParticipants 1Replies 0Last Activity 8 years, 4 months ago
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
As a test I removed the prolog from the topic files, and added the following to the online map:
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?
