Subject: Re: [dita-lightweight-dita] Added <fn> to DTDs

Hi Mark,

fn should actually be a block element, per:


It should have a required id attribute, and the same standard attributes as other block elements in lightweight DITA (we don't use the select-atts entity in LW DITA): %localization, %filters, %reuse, and the class attribute.

There's no issue with the extra value in the video/audio class attribute - it's required to make it valid DITA. It does mean, if we decide not to support multi-level specialization, that people will not be able to specialize audio or video.

FYI here are the emails for note and the specialization elements/atts:

I am in the process of updating the LWDITA DTDs. I just added <fn> to
topic.mod. I added fn to the all-inline content model used by shortdesc,
p, pre, ph, dt.

If you want to see a diff of the changes, it is here:


I will also soon add <note> per recent discussions, and the
specialization elements and attributes (spec*).

I had a couple of questions:

1. In DITA 1.3 <fn> includes the %select-atts; attributes. I left them
out, do we need these in LWDITA?
2. I finally removed <object> from the DTD. I notice that <audio> and
<video> still have object in their class attributes like this: "+
topic/object h5m-d/audio " -- will this cause any problems given that
object is not defined?
