Subject: RE: [dita] Presence of @id affects processing?
After further thought I agree that my first suggestion is better. It really is tied to the fn behavior and would get lost being discussed as part of @id. I do however think that @id should at least call out the fact that fn uses the attribute differently so that users reading up on @id would not miss it (my first suggestion covers this, I just want to call it out more specifically). -- Gershon -----Original Message----- From: ekimber [mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Thursday, October 29, 2009 8:24 PM To: Gershon Joseph (gerjosep); Ogden, Jeff; Bruce Nevin (bnevin); dita Subject: Re: [dita] Presence of @id affects processing?

I think the first option is better since this is really a detail of how fn works, not a more general architectural aspect of DITA.
