'Help cannot search for that phrase'

I am getting the message 'Help cannot search for that phrase' while searching for 'xml' in a chm (generated using RH9). The old CHM (generated using RH8) shows the results for the keyword xml. Is this a known issue? Any workaround to resolve this issue?

    I just tried in a Rh10 project and got the same result in a CHM but not in WebHelp, there the search worked so I suspect it is something in the Microsoft Help Compiler.


    There is a solution if you can upgrade to Rh10. That allows you to generate WebHelp and then convert it to a skinned CHM. I just tried that and there the search worked in the CHM.
