ID attributes (%id-atts;) is a parameter entity declaration in the topic DTD that includes attributes that enable the naming and referencing of elements in a DITA topic: id and conref.
|Name||Description||Data Type||Default Value||Required?|
|id||An anchor point. This ID is the target for references by href and conref attributes, and for external applications that refer to DITA content.||NMTOKEN||#IMPLIED||No|
|conref||This attribute is used to reference an ID on content that can be reused. See The conref attribute for examples and details about the syntax.||CDATA||#IMPLIED||No|
The %id-atts; parameter entity is used within the DITA dtds as a common definition for attributes available to most elements that enable you to name or reference (link to or fetch) the content of particular elements. Some typical examples include:
<p id="mainpara">The war cry of Kudzu University, <q id="warcry">To the victor go the spoils!</q>, is often heard on campus during freshman orientation.</p> <p id="dullpara">One often hears the cry, <q conref="#topicid/warcry"/>, when students are competing in intramural sports.</p>
