Hi Simon,

You seem to have set the filter content inside the DITA Map.
The DITA Map must contain references to DITA topics. Each reference can 
be profiled so that when the DITAVAL filter is applied only a certain 
part of the DITA Map is published.
Only your "plumbers.ditaval" must contain the filter content.

You can find a video demonstration about using Oxygen for DITA profiling

You should consider registering on the Yahoo Groups DITA Users List:

It is a very good place where to ask DITA questions which are not 
related with Oxygen.
