That's just one of hundreds of problems you will have trying to use the conversion table method. It's grossly inadequate. Links, graphics, tables... it's a long list. >If anyone's got any ideas about how to do this - or about >how else to avoid having to manually re-create thousands >of cross-refs - I'd be really grateful!

We spent quite a few engineer-years working with DITA TC members on many large conversion projects (including IBM's) to get it right. And to make it as easy as possible. This has actually become the second-biggest use case for Mif2Go (the biggest is still conversion to Word). Save yourself a BIG bundle of time and money, and use it. -- Jeremy H.
