Rick, I thought you could do this in the EDD, and you can, but it might depend on the type of attribute. Search the Structure_Dev_Guide for default attribute. I only got seven hits. Most of the hits are concerned with the DTD, but there is a comment that keeps popping up "In FrameMaker, a default attribute value can only be specified in the EDD,..." (on page 242, last line). Then there is a reference to page 176, where there is a discussion on Default value. The discussion leads me to think graphics, but in other hits, with the same comment, there is an example of a labeled list where a default is applied (see page 229 in Translating attributes).
So my gut feel is Yes you can define default attributes in the EDD, in fact it is the only way you can.

I have a client that wants to know if it is possible to "set all
attributes to default values when the EDD is imported". I suspect that
the answer is no, but I am pretty sure that it can be done with a
FrameScript script. However, I don't want to propose a script if it can be done without one.
Thanks in advance.
