    The search & replace cannot insert certain characters

      Hi all,

       

      I have been trying to use RoboHelp's find & replace tool to insert HTML tags. Evidently it is not possible to insert the "<" and ">" characters?

       

      The task:

      We have a text with literature references that look like [123]. All these references should be linked to a certain topic that contains the list of literature.

      My idea was to replace [ by <a href="javascript:BSSCPopup('topic.htm');>[ and ] by ]</a>. The result would be that all references are linked via popup.

       

      But the program always inserts HTML masks such as &gt; instead of >.

       

      Any ideas for this?

       

      Robert
