An ">" symbol at the top of each JavaHelp page?

Hello all,

 

I have generated JavaHelp off an imported Word 2007 document on a Windows 7 box.  Interestingly, an unsightly ">" (the greater than sign) is appearing at beginning of each help page when ported to my Fedora 13/Linux box.  The preview of the JavaHelp on the Windows 7 machine (where I generated the JavaHelp) does not show this ">" at the top of each help page.

 

Any idea why the unexpected ">" is showing up at the top of each help page on Fedora/Linux box?

 

Thanks.

    Look at the fields in the SSL dialogs. There is an option to select different encoding. Maybe that will help?

    I had a similar issue where the ">" sign was showing up at the beginning of each page in JavaHelp.  The fix was to delete everything out of the directory I was compiling to (or compile the jar file to a new, empty folder).

    Are you using the same version of Java and JavaHelp on the Linux box that you are on the Windows box?  I still haven't figured out how to determine which version RoboHelp uses.  These are the steps I took to solve it:

     

    1. Installed Java version 6 (latest version)

    2. Installed JavaHelp 2.0

    3. Reinstalled RoboHelp so upon generating JavaHelp it would prompt me to point to the Java and JavaHelp versions I wanted to use for the compile.

    4. Compiled to a new/clean folder.

    I'm also using version 9.  I didn't have to set the JAVA_HOME variable.  After I reinstalled RoboHelp and compiled my JavaHelp project for the very first time, it asked me where my Java and JavaHelp were installed (in two separate prompts after I clicked Save and Generate).  After that, the > at the top of each file went away.  However, when I did a search, it was still displaying the title of each of my search results as:

    10 > >

    5 > >

    2 > >

     

    When I compiled to a clean directory, this was fixed and again displayed the actual page title instead of the > symbol.
