I'm using RoboHelp 9.0.271.
I consider myself relatively well-versed in localization issues when it comes to generating an html help (chm) from RoboHelp, but this one has me stumped. In the Russian version of our main help file, the Glossary tab has strange ASCII characters in place of expected Russian characters when the help file is viewed on an 32-bit system, like this:
But notice RH's Glossary pod in the RH UI in the above capture. It displays the correct characters.
Similarly, if it's viewed on a 64-bit system, it displays the Russian characters properly.
Custom tab="&Glossary", HHActiveX.GlossaryPane
HtmlHelp="Файл справки PC-DMIS","Core.hhc","Core.hhk","","intro.htm",,,,,0x400e1520,0,0x384e,[167,44,867,684],0x 0,0x0,,0,0,0,[Glossary,HHActiveX.GlossaryPane]
Any ideas on how to resolve this? Or is this just a limitation of 32-bit systems and Russian characters that I'll have to swallow?
This thread is not about glossary issues but it does contain some precise instructions from Bill Bloomberg about foreign language CHMs. I wonder if it might help.
Also try this one.
