Adding your specializations to the Web Author

By default, the Web Author supports the DITA 1.2 standard as well as IXIASOFT specializations. If you have added your own specializations to the DITA CMS, you also need to add them to the Web Author.

The DTDs required by the Web Author are packaged in a file called, which is included in the webauthor/webauthor.war file provided with the installation package. To add your specializations to the Web Author, two steps are required:
  1. Create a custom file.

Note: This feature requires Web Author version and up. Please upgrade to the latest version if necessary.
