Subject Re: DITA for Doc?

Would it be worth considering using DITA for the documentation/help?

What a coincidence <eg> So the Symphony team will contribute their
work back to AOOo? I would suggest to talk to localizers to prevent
flushing their work down the drain when migrating.

Does the DITA implementation of Symphony support all functions
that OOo help currently offers, e.g. context-sensitivity,
extended tips, text transclusion, etc?

When we switched the format of SO/OOo back then, it was a major
hassle to include all localizations in the migration. Beware of
any side-effects.
