Are you using the DITA 1.3 troubleshooting topic? #troubleshooting

Kristen James Eberlein

I'm curious; how many companies and implementations are using the DITA 1.3 troubleshooting topic?

The troubleshooting topic arrived with DITA 1.3; it was championed by the DITA Technical Communication subcommittee and much of the work was done by Bob Thomas, Tagsmiths.

There is an excellent white paper that Bob authored for the DITA Adoption TC:

Anyhow, who is using the troubleshooting topic? Are there things that work for you? Things that don't work for you?

For DITA 2.0 we (the DITA TC) are looking at the following enhancements:

  • A diagnostic element
  • Allowing <draft-comment> as an option child of <remedy>
