SUMMARY:  Customize the formatting and layout of DITA files in Frame
ISSUE:  You want to change the way your files look in FrameMaker for authoring and printing.
SOLUTION:  You need to modify the template and possibly the EDD of the associated structure application. It is recommended that you clone the structure application to make your own app rather than modifying the default. That way, *when* (yes, when) you break something, you'll be able to test with the default app to see what's wrong. You can refer to the following topic in the DITA-FMx online Help for info on
doing this.

Even though this is specific to DITA-FMx, it should apply as well to the default FM8 DITA apps.
