Thank you for such a quick reply.

I had thought the css styling in the profiles editor only affected the editing 
environment.  I had forgotten that this was used together with "flag" to change 
the formatting in the output document.

Now very easy and obvious, sorry for taking up your time.

Sample ".profiles" file: <XXE_install_dir>/demo/dita-samples/status.profiles

--> Make sure to use "File|Save as" on your local copy to force the
"Easy Profiling" add-on to recreate the corresponding the ".ditaval" 
files in subdirectory "status_files/".


0) Your topic files  are assumed to contain paragraphs having the profiling 
attributes specified in your ".profiles" file. Example: 
attribute "status" for above sample "status.profiles".

1) Associate the ".profiles" file to your DITA map using "Map|Conditional 
Processing|Select Profile"'. Example: above sample "status.profiles".

2) Select a profile found in the ".profiles" file. Example: 
"HighlightStatus" in above sample "status.profiles".

3) Convert your DITA map to PDF for example.
