[oXygen-user] Setting up catalogs
Tue Jun 24 04:22:49 CDT 2008
Can you tell us more details about your issue?
I understand that you use URN's in topicref href's and you want when a
map is opened in the DITA Maps Manager view to see correctly the links
to the hrefs (solved by catalog) and of course when double clicking a
link to open in the editor the real location solved by catalog.
Indeed Oxygen does not yet solve by catalog the topic references
presented in the DITA Maps Manager but we can work on this.
Is my understanding correct?
You also speak something about Oxygen ignoring catalog entries at
validation. What kind of validation are you referring to? A DITA Map is
only validated against a DTD and the validation process does not check
the topic ref's in the map if they point to valid topic refs.
I understand that you have an xml catalog which solves the URN's to real
locations. Can you send us a sample from it?
Also, how have you modified the DITA-OT toolkit to allow the URN's to be
resolved at transformation time?

The documentation says that "the OASIS XML catalogs present in the list maintained in the XML Catalog Preferences panel will be scanned trying to map a remote system ID (at document validation) or a URI reference (at document transformation)"
