In this advanced-level course for DITA XML technical writers, you will quickly and easily learn how to use profiling and how to activate flagging using the Oxygen XML Author tool.

How is this course organized?
Section 1: Profiling
You will learn how to profile (condition) the content in DITA XML using Oxygen XML Author.
I will show you the different levels on which profiling can happen in DITA. You will learn to profile an entire map and a topic in your map.
We then shall drill down into profiling on single topic elements, looking at this low-level where profiling can happen.
Section 2: Flagging
You will learn how to flag profiled content in DITA.
Flagging is a very cool feature of DITA XML, that allows you to highlight, or in other words, to make content with a different look and feel in the output. All of the highlights happen automatically, based on the profiling conditions applied and the flag you have chosen to activate these highlights.
The flags you can choose from in DITA XML are:
Background color highlight. You can specify a background color to be added in the output to the content that has been profiled with a specific profiling value.
Text highlight. You can specify texts to appear when the profiling has been used. Not only that, you can even have different text that appears before and another one that appears after the profiled text for different profiling values!
Image-based highlight. You can create a custom image, that matches better your brand and preferences. And then you can use that image to highlight profiled text!
