Subject: Re: [dita] Which version of the DITA 1.2 spec do you use, and why?

I sometimes use the online html version. More often I use the CHM version that we build ourselves into XMetaL because we have "jump to help on this element" built into it.

On the dev side we depend (obviously) on the DITA source to build that CHM.  In particular we also depend on the topic IDs being programmatically determinable from the element names (they actually ARE the element names at present, I believe).

The DITA 1.2 spec was delivered in the following formats:
  • XHTML hosted on the OASIS Web site
  • CHM
  • PDF
  • DITA source
  • ZIP of XHTML file that can be used locally (late addition, available from TC home page, probably no one knows about it)

Which format do you use? If you use multiple formats, when and why?
