SUMMARY:  Formatting looks different than expected when generating a book from a map
ISSUE:  When using the Map to Book command to generate a FM book from a DITA map, the formatting in the generated FM files looks different than expected.
SOLUTION:  The Map to Book command uses the "Book" structure application to apply the formatting for the generated FM files (the actual application name will vary, but this is set in the Options dialog). If you've made changes to the Topic application that you want to be available in your generated files, you also need to make parallel changes to the Book application (template and/or EDD).
