Hi Scott,

I've played around with the DITA 1.2 (not 2.1, its the
other way around) :)  a little bit these past few
weeks.  There are some problems with the java files in
it that they have submitted patches for, but you need
to get the dita source files, apply the patch, and
recompile in order to get it working.  Otherwise, the
toolkit doesnt build our Derby project.

I agree that we should move to 1.2 though, as soon as
they release a binary distribution that includes the
patches.  1.2 handles links a lot better, as you
stated, and it moves us closer and closer to not
having to mod the xsl file each time.
