Yes the PDF file is bad, but I cant say whether the
problems are due to a lack of information in the dita
files or if we need to modify the stylesheets somehow.
 We just need to do some experimenting to see what
needs to be done.  I plan on playing with it soon, but
right now I am trying to finish up the conversion of
the Reference Manual to DITA, which is very close to
being done.  Once thats done, I'll have more time to
do some research on that issue, and we'll also ahve
another book to work with! 

FYI, while the Getting Started Guide came in at around
50 something DITA topics, I am looking at about 325
DITA topics for the Reference Manual, which I expect
to be the largest of the entire doc set.
