    Importing HTML Screws Up Source Code

    blackmetaltechwriter Community Member

      Hi,

       

      I'm using RoboHelp 8 under Windows 7. I use Dreamweaver to edit topics.

       

      I have been extracting stuff from a database and converting it to HTML for use in our help system's glossary. I'm not using the RoboHelp glossary; it's too limited. Our glossary is just a giant topic with about 1800 terms. Each term begins with a named anchor tag.

       

      We hope to map to these terms from the Web application we're developing.

       

      After I extract the data, I have a source HTML file that looks like something like this:

       

      <a name="Alarm Activation Time"/>

      <h4>Alarm Activation Time</h4>

      <blockquote>

        <p/>

      </blockquote>

      <h6>Configurable Values</h6>

      <blockquote>

        <p/>

      </blockquote>

      <h6>TL1 Keyword</h6>

      <blockquote>

        <p>AAT</p>

      </blockquote>

      <h6>TL1 Keyword Values </h6>

      <blockquote>

        <p/>

      </blockquote>

      <h6>Name</h6>

      <blockquote>

        <p>Alarm Activation Time</p>

      </blockquote>

       

      After importing it into RoboHelp, it gets turned into this:

       

      </a> <a name="Alarm Activation Time"></a>

      <h4><a name="Voided Warranty" style="color: #0000ff; text-decoration: underline; ">Alarm

      Activation Time</a></h4>

      <blockquote>

      <p>&#160;</p>

      </blockquote>

      <h6><a name="Voided Warranty" style="color: #0000ff; text-decoration: underline; ">Configurable

      Values</a></h6>

      <blockquote>

      <p>&#160;</p>

      </blockquote>

      <h6><a name="Voided Warranty" style="color: #0000ff; text-decoration: underline; ">TL1

      Keyword</a></h6>

      <blockquote>

      <p><a name="Voided Warranty" style="color: #0000ff; text-decoration: underline; ">AAT</a></p>

      </blockquote>

      <h6><a name="Voided Warranty" style="color: #0000ff; text-decoration: underline; ">TL1

      Keyword Values</a></h6>

      <blockquote>

      <p>&#160;</p>

      </blockquote>

      <h6><a name="Voided Warranty" style="color: #0000ff; text-decoration: underline; ">Name</a></h6>

      <blockquote>

      <p><a name="Voided Warranty" style="color: #0000ff; text-decoration: underline; ">Alarm

      Activation Time</a></p>

      </blockquote>

      <a name="Voided Warranty" style="color: #0000ff; text-decoration: underline; "><br />

       

      RoboHelp tries to insert the first named anchor in the document ("Voided Warranty") into every single section.

       

      I've tried creating an empty topic and pasting in code. RoboHelp still tries to auto-bookmark everything.

       

      Can I disable this behavior?

       

      Thanks.
