[oXygen-user] newbie question -- how to set up Oxygen for DITA?

Hi James,

If you have a schema or a DTD specified in your files then there is 
nothing you should set up, oXygen will detect those schemas or DTDs and 
will use them for content completion and validation.

If you have your XML files without any schema or DTD associated then you 
have two options:

* make default associations in oXygen options (see Options->Preferences 
-- Editor / Default Schema Association. For instance you can add an 
association as follows to handle concept files:

Namespace: <ANY>
Root local name: concept
File name: <ANY>
Schema type: XML Schema
Schema URI: path to concept.xsd DITA schema

* associate the schema or the DTD that you want inside your documents 
(using a DOCTYPE declaration for instance for DTDs or the schema 
instance xsi:schemaLocation or xsi:noNamespaceSchemaLocation for XML 
Schema). In this later case the oXygen associate schema action may help you.
