The Technical Content specialization also contains DITAVAL files. DITAVAL files enable you to associate conditional processing actions with values assigned to the DITA standard conditional processing attributes. You can specify actions that include content in or exclude content from processing such as publishing. You can set actions also flag content during processing in various ways such as text highlighting. When a document with an associated DITAVAL file is published, the conditional processing actions defined in the DITAVAL file are applied.
You can provide a DITAVAL to use during publishing in the DITAVAL File option on the publishing dialog boxes. Arbortext Editor also supports referencing a DITAVAL file in a DITA map, so that the file’s conditional processing actions are applied to all or part of the map during publishing.
