  Hi Yves,

You can see the same behavior when running the standard DITA OT XHTML 
transformation on which the Webhelp transformation is based.
DITA OT does not handle very well cases in which references are outside 
the DITA Map scope.
Maybe you can get some more hints on the DITA Users list, the only 
option seems to be toggling the "generate.copy.outer" DITA parameter but 
this does not work so well also.
