Subject: Re: [dita] Attributes for topicrefs that use @keyref

Hi Tarun,

The href behavior you are describing is correct. The @href value is only a
fallback value for instances where the key does not resolve; if the key
resolves, then the original @href value is never used. That is the primary
purpose of the keyref function.

Are there other attributes that cause concern?

Subject:	[dita] Attributes for topicrefs that use @keyref

The section “ Processing key references”, mentions:

                “The attributes that are common to a key definition element
and a key reference element using that key, other than the @keys and @id
attributes, are combined as for content references, including……..”

As I understand, I see concerns for other attributes that will get
combined/derived. Like if @href is derived from the key defining element,
then the fallback target of the topicref shall be lost… or in other words
the @href mentioned in key defining element shall get used as the fallback
in all the topicrefs referring to that key.
