Hi Tricia,
RoboHelp 8 doesn't support DITA to my knowledge. Adobe FrameMaker 8 does.

The few HATTs that support importing/exporting of DITA, at this point, which
I am familiar with is MadCap Flare 5 and to some degree AuthorIT. In coming
months, I expect a growing suite of HATTs to do the same, as is the case

I don't work for them, but this is just my experience with HATTs.

Is anyone using RoboHelp 8 with DITA? When I import a DITA map, I get the
error "xxx is not a valid HTML Help file." During the import, I haven't
selected anything to indicate that this is an HTML Help project. Any ideas?

If I can't successfully import a map into RoboHelp, I at least need to
verify that RH handles specializations and conrefs. I tried asking on the RH
Adobe forum, and they suggested I contact the Techwrl or HATT list.
