SUMMARY:  Can't delete topicrefs from a map
ISSUE:  You delete topicrefs from a map file, then when you save, close and reopen the file the deleted topicrefs are back.
SOLUTION:  In FrameMaker each topicref is made up of two elements, the topicref and an fm-topicreflabel. The fm-topicreflabel element provides the visual label that you can click on, when saved to XML, this element is stripped. If you delete the fm-topicreflabel element, the topicref looks like it's gone. If you then save and close the map, when you reopen the map, the fm-topicreflabel is rebuilt.

When deleting a topicref, be sure to delete both the fm-topicreflabel and the topicref itself.
