Specifying Context-Sensitive Help Links in DITA Source Documents
Before you specify context-sensitive help links, review context-sensitive help link requirements. For more information about context-sensitive help and context-sensitive help link requirements, see “Understanding Context-Sensitive Help” and “Output Formats that support Creating Context-Sensitive Help Links In DITA Source Documents”.
To specify a topic alias for a topic in a DITA source document:
1. In your DITA source document, locate your topic’s meta information container element.
2. For this element, you use the <othermeta> element to define the topic alias, for example: <othermeta name="TopicAlias" content="helpid"/>
Note: You can also use the <data> element to define topic alias values, for example: <data name="TopicAlias" value="helpid"/>
3. Save the DITA document
4. Generate output for your target. For more information, see “Generating Output”
Steps for creating context-sensitive help links in DITA may be different in other versions of DITA.
