So at this point, I think we should do a manual transforms -> html and 
see what the problems are.  Jeff has found the parent child problem, 
which is what forrest uses by default to create the website.  I'm 
certain he has found others.  Then focus on the pdf files.  I think Jeff 
has already done that.  I'm looking at the dita-dtd stuff currently.  
Jeff, were you using the XSLT Scripts referenced in the dita 
XSL-README.txt?  Also, we might want to see if any more information on 
the subject is publicly available.

A good case study that might get someone up a bit faster with a bit of 
good background information might be:

"Transforming Documentation from the XML Doctypes used for the Apache 
Website to DITA: a Case Study" by Donald M Leslie.

I am sure a bunch more exist, as when I was looking around I found a lot 
of use and papers on the subject.
