Subject: Re: [dita-comment] Question about locktitle

Hi Julio,

Thanks for your opinion. The DITA OT indeed works this way.
From the specification it was not very clear to me what should a processor do if the locktitle is yes but no navigation title is specified on the topicref.

The expectation would be for the processor to do something like this:

Locate navtitle in topicref's topicmeta. If not there then obtain the navtitle from the topic. If that's missing, the fallback would be to the title in the topic.

Subject: [dita-comment] Question about locktitle

Hi everybody,

Let's say I have a topicref like:

     <topicref href="topics/introduction.dita" locktitle="yes"/>

which has locktitle specified but does not specify a navtitle on the topicref.

The locktitle attribute is described here:


Should a DITA specification compliant processor (DITA OT for example) display in this case when publishing the DITA Map to XHTML for example an empty title for the reference above or should it display the title detected in the referenced topic?
