    I have one large ditamap (Book A), and several chapters from Book A will be dropped verbatim in Book B.
    • Is it better to create Book B and then when creating the ditamap itself for Book B to just pull those files from the folder where they were created for Book A?
    • Is it better to tag the files in Book A that will appear in Book B using a condition? If I go this route, how would I ensure that the correct title was used on the title page?
    • Would conrefs handle this more elegantly?
    • Is there a different method that I haven’t considered?

    I'm XMetaL 7.0.
