XMetal newb here, installed the trial of Author Enterprise 16.0 x64 …
I am looking at the XMetal Author sample called “DITA”, installed in
C:\Program Files\XMetaL 16.0\Author\Samples\DITA
The one whose root map node is called “Using World Time Pro”
I ran “Generate Output for DITA Map” which resulted in a new directory called “webhelp_out”.
In the webhelp_out directory tree is is a file called
This file contains one statement:
If I run the help web page there is a Home button which when clicked, goes to the above URL.
Some questions about this:

2. How can I override the value of gHomePage for my own DITA project so that every generate uses my custom value and not the default?
Thank you for any suggestions.nhu1 August 4, 2022 at 10:06 am
