Re: DITA to text - which XSL transform ?

I know this is an older thread, I just wanted to mention [Elovirt's markdown plugin](https://github.com/jelovirt/dita-ot-markdown). It can do DITA-to-markdown, which sounds like roughly what the OP was asking for.

Re: Error when using chunking with the webhelp transformation

This looks to be an OT issue in general (Also happened when using the dita4publishsers html5 transformation with OT 1.8.5).

Rather than trying to figure this, I decided to take the time to refactor my content to get rid of nested topics in the first place.

Error when using chunking with the webhelp transformation

I'm getting an error message when using the webhelp transformation on some composite dita files that were created using the docbook2dita stylesheets.

Re: Allow profiling attributes to pass through to HTML.

Thanks Sorin. I figured that was the case. Looking at that issue though, this actually was implemented (to an extent...) in the DITA-OT2.0. I just tried this out, and the html5 transformation will indeed pass the attribute through (to data-audience="[val]"). I think the current webhelp is ...

Re: Allow profiling attributes to pass through to HTML.

I know this question is a year old, but I do have a question about this. According to the DITA 1.2 standard , a user should be able to use the action="passthrough" attribute in a ditaval file to filter the content in *and* keep the attribute value. For example: <val> <prop action="pas...

Re: Applying a transformation scenario to several files at o

Wow--That's great and exactly what I needed! In fact, the logical folder is even better than what I was trying to do since you can pick and choose which ones you want.

It's amazing how often I think something will be complicated, and it turns out Oxygen can do it in 30 seconds.
