[[Re-posting my question because no answer since posted last
week. Surely someone knows?]]]
Non-breaking hyphens in WebHelp do not work (the hyphenated
word breaks at the end of the line) when the help system is
displayed in Internet Explorer, although they work fine (keeps the
hypenated word together) when displayed in another browser such as
Mozilla Firefox. I've googled and can't find any mention of it. Is
this a known issue with WebHelp? IE?
The code that RoboHELP inserts for a non-breaking hyphen is
I tried replacing - with ‑ in the source code, but
RoboHELP reverts to the original.
Does any one know how to implement non-breaking hyphens, or
is it just not supported? Thanks.
Welcome to the forum. The built-in RHtml editor is known to
take these kinds of liberties with your code, and you really do
need to see a "‑" in there, or perhaps, just the html
entity itself. This is where you might consider using DreamWeaver
as your default editor. It won't change your code like the native
editor (or FrontPage, for that matter) does.
The alternative is to use a search-n-replace tool (like
ReplaceEm) to process the
files after generation.
