    Thanks, Derek. I had taken that part of the spec to refer to output processing. That's what we plan to use locktitle for: to force the use of the navtitle in output in certain cases.

    Where locktitle won't be used, we had planned to use the logical object name as the navtitle – a name that is consistent across versions, regardless of any title changes within the topic. But on reflection, it's OK to populate the navtitle with the topic title, and at least for now we can keep track of the logical name elsewhere.

    Good to hear you made this a feature request.

    Thanks, Derek. However, I can't use locktitle for this purpose. It's reserved for a specific effect in our stylesheet.  And rather than doing this on a topic-by-topic basis, I'd like to make this a global setting: that XMetaL should never auto-populate the navtitles. Is there a file I can edit for that?

    Thanks for the detailed information, Derek, and sorry to take a while to get back to you. A few quick replies:

    1) BatangChe, a Korean font, shows up OK in the Plain Text View options. I'd thought it would make more sense to get Arial Unicode MS in there to cover everything without having to switch fonts. But after your explanation I'll proceed with caution.

    2) That's enough information to go on for now, thanks.

    3) We don't currently have any customizations to the DTD, CSS, etc. We have a CMS bridge but this shouldn't be affecting the default templates as far as I know. This question was really due to curiosity — why does pasting/saving/opening Korean text work when it shouldn't, according to the description in the other thread I linked (if I understood it correctly). We don't actually need this functionality at the moment, but if you are also interested you could try the following:
    i) Create a new DITA concept.
    ii) From the Wikipedia [url=http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Korean_language]Korean Language[/url] page, copy 인천/仁川 (the characters for Incheon).
    iii) Paste the characters into the empty paragraph in the concept, then save and close the file, and close XMetaL.
    iv) Open the file in XMetaL again. The characters should display OK.

    Thanks,
    Joe
