Duplicate topic IDS within DITA map

Hi, If I turn on the option for 'Check for duplicate topic IDs within the DITA map context' in Oxygen XML Author, I will see many results. However, this isn't a concern for me (AFAIK). When I do an external transform from DOS I see these results being output in the output being sent to the console. ...

Re: Strange output for Webhelp transformation

Hi Bogdan,
It appears the problem was a warning that I ignored from validation which was telling me that that a link to a local file couldn't be resolved. I don't understand why this resulted in the problem that it did...but removing that broken link removed the problem.
