Subject: Re: [dita] Language reference: containment info

Can anyone suggest how we can restore the "contains"/"contained by" navigation content in the language reference for DITA 1.0? The language reference is much diminished, IMHO, by their absence.  Don, in the absence of that ideal DTD traversal tool, why can't we rerun your original script?

DTDs and generated the links. With changes in the content models in the
two years since that last pass, the sections were no longer valid
reflections of what is in the content models. Michael and I decided not
to publish the errant navigation. Ideally, a tool that traverses DTDs
should be able to produce a map that represents the content
relationships, thereby providing the navigation externally from the
content, which is the whole intent of having easily maintained topics.
