    Hum ok, well it seemed to work on my system and replace the deleted files. The setup.exe and stuff have a modified date of 1/14/2010. I’m using the extracted files from the install instead of trying to use the add & remove msi and stuff.  We are still mainly on XMetaL 5.5 but getting ready to migrate to 6.0. I don’t see way  re running the install  would not  replace the files.

    we are using XMetaL Author Enterprise – Version#: 5.5.0.266 Service Pack 1

    I just tested it in the “XML View of Map” and it doses seem to work properly. The issue is when  using the “Topic Reference Properties” in the Map Editor View witch is what we mainly use.

    1. Open a DITA Map in “Map Editor view” that contains at least one element.
    2. Select a map item and click the “properties…” button. The “Topic Reference Properties” dialog opens.
    3. On the “Special Attributes” tab make a change to one of the values, set any of the items to a value.
    4. Click the “OK” button to dismiss the dialog.
    5. Open the “properties…” again and the setting is correctly changed.
    6. Now set that value to blank and click “OK”.
    7. Open the “properties…” again and you can see the setting was not saved.

    My first thought would be to write a transform that parses though the input ditamap or ditabookmap after all sub maps have been processed in.  Then transform that map into a new file name and have filepath+filename and section number pairs. Then when processing each topic file you can use that file with the document () function and then lookup what section number you need on it. There may be an easier way or more efficient but that’s just my thoughts. You may want to also look into the  DITA 1.2 leaning specialization ( http://www.oasis-open.org/committees/tc_home.php?wg_abbrev=dita-learningspec )  may have some kind of way to  number sections.
