Element domain tokens help with standalone generalization
True. This is one of the original DITA 1.0 reasons for domain tokens.
But … generalization is rare, and already requires some knowledge of a document type. After all – how do you know what modules to generalize if you don't know what modules are present?
(topic pr-d)is meaningless if I don't already know
pr-dis code for the programming domain.
- If I know that, then I don't need the token to be present in
- If I don't know that, then I have to start digging into my file. Finding the token
(topic pr-d)doesn't help unless I know the
@classattributes of the domain I wish to generalize. If I know the
@classattributes, then they already provide everything I need to generalize.
