RE: [JAVAHELP] adding online help to your javahelp

It is probably because you are using the XML closing element technique in your HTML:

You can still be XML compliant and Java HTML viewer compliant with the following construct:

You will also find that the XML declaration:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>

Will also cause display problems in the viewer. I have not come up with a workaround for that yet.

There are alternate Java HTML renderers available and in development:

XHTMLRenderer https://xhtmlrenderer.dev.java.net/
XHTMLRenderer, a 100% Java library for embedding rich XHTML and CSS content in desktop applications.

JHelpViewer http://www.javio.com/jhelpviewer/index.html
JHelpViewer is a commercial JavaHelp plugin to display HTML using WebWindow HTML renderer. Supports JavaHelp search highlighting and synchronising with the JavaHelp TOC. Supports XHTML style tagging and ignores XML declaration.

JDIC https://jdic.dev.java.net/
JDesktop Integration Components (JDIC). JDIC provides Java applications with access to facilities provided by the native desktop such as the mailer, the browser, and registered document viewing applications. JavaHelp Search highlighting is not supported. Synchronising with the JavaHelp TOC is not supported.

There have been various posts in this forum about using JDIC and on other potential browsers.

All the best,

Jon
