    I am using Xmetal Author 7.0 Enterpise and authoring software Help in DITA. Should the software install DITA as the source for help, then build a customized HTML output on customer's PC? I am authoring software Help in DITA. Should the software install DITA as the source for help, then build a customized HTML output on customer's PC?
