Here's a couple of snippets: <XRef <XRefName `heading & page'> <XRefSrcText `33911: ph: Replacing the Backup Battery (TM02xx102 only)'> <XRefSrcIsElem No> <XRefSrcFile `'> <XRefLastUpdate 1066397288 0> <Unique 16204> > # end of XRef <String `\xd2 '> <String `Replacing a Backup Battery Pack'> <String `\xd3 on page'> <Char HardSpace> <String `4'> <Char HardHyphen> <String `8'> <XRefEnd > [a big pile of MIF in-between shoveled out] <Marker <MType 9> <MTypeName `Cross-Ref'> <MText `33911: ph: Replacing the Backup Battery (TM02xx102 only)'> <MCurrPage `8'> <Unique 16136> > # end of Marker I think Frame matches up the XRefSrcText with the marker's MText to resolve the cross-reference. In any case, deleting the Unique tags doesn't make a difference -- indeed, I deleted everything between the "end of XRef" and "<XRefEnd >" lines and Frame was able to reconstruct that information as well. So yes, I think this could work. -- Larry Kollar, Senior Technical Writer, ARRIS "Content creators are the engine that drives value in the information life cycle." -- Barry Schaeffer, on XML-Doc ** To unsubscribe, send a message to email@example.com ** ** with "unsubscribe framers" (no quotes) in the body. **
