Subject: RE: [dita] Allowing for multi-level specialization in topicmeta

It seems to answer my problem very well.

Thanks for the quick response, I guess I missed this one.

Hi France - I think that with 1.1 you will be able to use the data
element for new metadata:
and the follow-up design:

That will be available in topicmeta, and has a much more extensive model
than the name/value pair in othermeta.

                                       specialization in topicmeta







I just got a case where I needed to extend topicmeta (enhancedmeta) in
order to include extra metadata to a map. The obvious solution was to
specialize from topicmeta/othermeta. However, othermeta cannot contain
other elements or text and therefore does not meet the requirements for
a multi-level specialization. I would suggest that we change the model
to othermeta (#PCDATA | othermeta)* in order to allow for multilevel


For my immediate needs,  I'll specialize from keywords/keyword in order
to get 2 levels, but I am breaking away from the semantics.
