<ph> element in <body> element

Fri Aug 14, 2009 4:38 pm

Hi everyone,

I'm new to XML, DITA, and Oxygen Editor so forgive me if my question is stupid.

I'm using the conref mechanism for variables (product names). For this purpose I've created a topic to contain those variables. The topic type is topic. Variables are placed in the <body> element.
Here's where my problem lies: DITA's Language Specification Version 1.1 says I can use <ph> in <body> but Oxygen Editor does not allow me to.

My Oxygen Editor version is 10.3.

Can you help me?

Thank you.

Hello,

The ph element cannot be a child of the body element. It can be a child of the p element and the p element can be a child of the body element. Can you post a fragment of your topic that contains the ph element and that you think should be validated without error?


Regards,
Sorin

Hi,

I feel like a fool : this morning I've read DITA's Language Specification Version 1.1 again and didn't read anywhere the <ph> element could be contained by the <body> element. I guess I was very tired Friday and misread the spec. I probably got confused between <p> and <ph>.

My apoplogies for any inconveniences.
