<quote> in addition to styles they create specifically for the FM file, they do not contain all of the other style information that may be used for the rest of the webhelp. </quote>
You may want to edit the fmstyles.css to add these styles, which you need. Once you add them, each chapter will have those styles as well and you don't need to make any changes there.
To add to my previous reply, after you edit the fmstyles.css, you may need to Update or Force Update the linked FrameMaker book - that shall propagate the styles to the Chapter level stylesheets.
Actually, I had already edited the fmstyles.css file and added all styles that are used throughout the webhelp (plus updated everything multiple times). The conversion process *does not* copy all css declarations to the individual generated css files. As has been mentioned in other posts (in the General Forum), after updating, you can select all topics and apply a style sheet and/or a template to the generated topics. However, it would be better if the process could be improved so that the user could specify whether or not they wanted to use individual css files or not. (design-wise, separate css files for each web page/topic are a bad idea imo).
I've run into a similar or identical problem while conducting a trial of the TCS. Would you mind if I contact you directly to discuss this issue? Do you have a phone number / skype address I can reach you at? Also, please note which time zone are you located in. I'm on skype at daniel.keen or on email email@example.com, and I'm located in Tel Aviv at GMT+2hrs.
The chapter level CSS is generated based on fmstyles.css and the mappings. Let's for example, you have a style which is part of fmstyles.css. You may need to map one of the FrameMaker styles to this style. Otherwise, this style is not used in the mapping process. Please try this.
To add to my previous post - If a style from fmstyles.css is not used in the mapping process, this style will now show up in the chapter level CSS.
If you are bringing content from FrameMaker, you should be able to use the mapping to select the style even for links or title.
For Non-FrameMaker HTML content in RH project, you can associate any stylesheet with the HTML topics. Right Click on the topic-> Select properties-> select appearance tab -> select the stylesheet you want to associate with that topic.
I hope this helps.
Correction - this style will NOT show up in the chapter level CSS.
