    Hi there,

    I've been playing around with DITA (XMetaL Author 9.0) for around about a week now and just wanted to know if anyone had any good resources or tutorials for specialization? I've been over the http://www.xiruss.org/tutorials/dita-specialization/ document and I'm struggling to plough through the pages and pages of text and make much sense of it. I follow some examples to the letter and still get errors.

    I understand that the basics but I'm a bit confused about file locations. Why does it seem that I have to have all my .mod and .ent files in ProgramData and in the project folder? The folder is getting pretty clogged up with files from multiple projects.

    I may be entirely wrong here but it only seems to work when I do that. Any resources to help me understand specialization syntax would be greatly appreciated.

    EDIT: I'm also looking for a book on DITA. A lot of reviews complain about the lack of explanation for specialization, any recommendations?
