A publisher might want to flag information that applies to administrators, and to exclude information that applies to the extended product.
Consider the following DITA source fragment and conditional processing profile:
Figure. DITA source fragment
<p audience="administrator">Set the configuration options: <ul> <li product="extendedprod">Set foo to bar</li> <li product="basicprod extendedprod">Set your blink rate</li> <li>Do some other stuff</li> <li>Do a special thing for Linux</li> </ul> </p>
Figure. DITAVAL profile
<val> <prop att="audience" val="administrator" action="flag"> <startflag><alt-text>ADMIN</alt-text></startflag> </prop> <prop att="product" val="extendedprod" action="exclude"/> </val>
When the content is rendered, the paragraph is flagged, and the first list item is excluded (since it applies to extendedprod). The second list item is still included; even though it does apply to extendedprod, it also applies to basicprod, which was not excluded.
The result should look something like the following:
ADMIN Set the configuration options:
- Set your blink rate
- Do some other stuff
- Do a special thing for Linux
