We use RoboHelp HTML. I was searching for information on
whether RoboHelp (X5) allows use of style sheets that were coded
outside RoboHelp, using a different editor, or will it cause a
conflict with RoboHelps built-in coding. Some developers want us to
use a style sheet they use on the regular company web pages (not
OLH) and import it into RoboHelp to apply to all the pages.
I'm concerned that this will cause a problem in RoboHelp,
perhaps even corrupt it and cause it to crash since I know RoboHelp
uses its own tags and code for pages so an outside style sheet that
was never created in RoboHelp may cause issues.
Please advise and let me know if this is possible. I
appreciate the help.
The style sheet must be within the project but with that
proviso, you can use a style sheet coded outside RH. Indeed, I
always make a point of editing my style sheets externally rather
than let RH put in a load of unnecessary code.
The only problem is that sometimes such spreadsheets contain
some coding which causes problems, usually when it comes to
creating printed documentation.
I would say backup and then try it out. With no guarantees, I
doubt it would crash RH or corrupt it. The worst I would expect
would be the wrong appearance or some hiccups.
