Thank you! That is very useful information to know. Silly me, I'd been happily anticipating that the 6-to-7 conversion would extract all the little devils.
It's important to me to remove the kadov tags. While most of them are harmless, there are some that cause a script error when the help topic is opened. I'm afraid that our people tend to frown on that.
Not sure when I'll get to try your procedure, but I'll let you know how it goes when I do.
Are you saying you are seeing Kadov in your RH7 projects or just thanking Harvey for indicating they will be there?
I will be testing a project later to see what I find.
I just tested one project before and after upgrading it from RH6 to RH7.
Source files had 1873 instances of kadov
Output files had 1314 instances of kadov
Source files had 4 instances of kadov. Investigation showed these were all in one topic and that revealed the instances were list items where no style had been applied. Applying the normal <p> tag and saving the file resulted in 0 instances being found.
The output was then regenerated and 0 instances of kadov were found.
Thanks to Peter, whose messages late Friday and yesterday I didn't see until this morning, I now retract nearly all of my previous post.
It happened that kadov cleanup was coded late in the RH 7 development cycle. I was looking at topics in a project that I had started in RH 6, then opened in a test version of RH 7 that was not the final release. Even though I started fresh, with a new project in the final RH 7 release, and imported those topics from the old RH 7 project, they had been tainted, apparently. I apologize for this false alarm.
I think my old .css stylesheet was an unnecessary complication. I plan to create a new one in RH 7 to match those styles.
Another oddity that still clouds the picture:
When you import topics from an RH 6 project, the RH 7 view of html source shows no evidence of kadov tags.
However, even after you save and close the new RH 7 project, Notepad and FAR find kadov tags lurking about until you make a change and save the topic in RH 7.
I understand you can edit and restore text in RH 7 before saving, and kadovs will be gone in Notepad and FAR, as well as from RH html view.
RH 7 does better if you open the old project directly, rather than importing individual topics. Yet, the old .css style sheets (default, etc.) retain kadovs. Maybe they get cleaned up later if you apply them, I haven't tried.
Not sure how well it works on import. Haven't tested that yet. Like I said, there was some evidence of kadov but only because the start point was wrong.
My searching was done using FAR. There have been odd instances going back years of RH and Notepad not being at one with each other, but haven't encountered it for a long time. I think we may have to accept it might not be a perfect process.
I don't know if the style sheet is supposed to get cleaned up. I never let my style sheets near the old editor so no kadov to clean up. If you make extensive use of lists though, there is good reason to open your stylesheets in RH7 and make a small change. See my site for more information on that.
