Subject: Re: [dita] Difficulty of interaction between <related-links> and reltable links

I’d be open to that. I’ve worked with more than one authoring group who abandoned relationship tables because they felt they were too difficult to manage and keep up-to-date, especially for large publications. Seems like an area ripe for consideration in 2.0.

    If the topic later becomes part of a map, I often will want to manage 
    the link relationships in a relationship table.
    However, the markup syntax makes moving <related-links> to relationship 
    tables difficult.
    Is this something that we should consider addressing for DITA 2.0? I do 
    realize that how the DITA-OT PDF2 transform handles this might be 
    something to consider ...
