[JAVAHELP] HTML generated by RoboHelp

1 reply [Last post]

The HTML below, generated by RoboHelp, is not displayed properly in the
JavaHelp viewer though it looks fine in IE. We are using jdk 1.4.0_03 and
JavaHelp 2.0. In particular, I don't see the effect of "font-weight:bold" or
"border-bottom:0.75pt solid black" and the em-dash &#190 displays as a
little rectangle.

Sorry to bother folks with this issue again. I see that the archives contain
a lot of traffic on this sort of thing, but I couldn't tell if with these
versions I should expect this to work. Is there a way to tell RoboHelp to
generate HTML that JavaHelp can handle and that will still have the desired
bolding, borders, etc?

Thanks,
Jo Taylor

RoboHelp does not generate HTML that renders correctly in JavaHelp. The
best solution is to use a different editor to create your HTML files.
