In this webinar, we tackle the DITA feature keyrefs and conkeyrefs. The keyref and conkeyref mechanisms allow you to easily switch variable content. We show:

  • how keys and key references are referenced by DITA maps
  • how processing is evaluated
  • how to combine keys with maps for easier manageability
  • how to use conkey references instead of conref to simplify reuse and manage your content.

After that, we will talk about:

  • how keys and conkeys work
  • how they are resolved in the processing pipeline
  • how levels of map can help manage variable content.

Examples will be used to demonstrate how everything works using Arbortext.
