Oxygen thinks I want to use DITA

Post by odeon » Mon Aug 18, 2008 9:46 am


This morning I created a well-formed, standalone, XML document. The purpose of this document is to map URNs with matching URLs in an application I'm building for a client. A simple config file that I can access using XSLT, in other words. No DTD or schema needed, just a few elements to quickly help me connect a URN to a URL.

I decided to name my root element "map".

Because of this naming choice, Oxygen now thinks I want to use DITA and therefore quickly marked my well-formed, non-DITA, document in red, offering a dozen or so error messages.

Surely this must be regarded as a bug? I mean, there is nothing in the XML spec or its cousins to restrict the letters "m", "a", and "p" to DITA, I have not used a DOCTYPE to point out a DITA DTD, and I have explicitly stated in my XML declaration that my little XML file is standalone.

The map root element is associated with the DITA Map document type in the preferences. If your documents having a map root element are not DITA maps you must disable the checkbox of the DITA Map document type in the Enabled column of the table available from Options -> Preferences -> Document Type Association.
