That was a very fast answer. Thank you very much Anindita!

Is nesting, for that purpose, a common practice in DITA?

To insert a <note> in a <step> in DITA, nest the <note> tag inside an
<info> tag, like this:

<step>
<cmd></cmd>
<info>
<note></note>
</info>
</step>

Hi and thank you for your help. That was much appreciated and very helpful.

Unfortunately, I don't have time for planning so I go head first and see
what happens. In a few months I will probably see, and maybe do, things
differently but as for now, I don't really have the time to consider it
more
than I've already done.

I'm following your advice of repeating notes and warnings (nothing life
threatening though) when appropriate, except that with DITA you cannot
insert notes in a step ... Must figure this out.
If someone here is a DITA expert, some advice will be appreciated.
Advice on best practices for reuse (especially conref) is welcome too.

Regards,

Claudine
