I'm still having the same problem I was hoping to find some solution, because it is really annoying.
I've noticed that this exception occurs after some minor modification in topic text (e.g. correcting a grammar mistake). Also, after generating JAVA help and viewing the results, the topics which have "?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ? at the beginning, won’t be displayed correctly and won’t be found in the search results.
So, I was not able to find the problem, although my colleague can modify the same help projects, and won’t get the same exception. So, my PC was changed, Robo Help installed freshly, but this problem still remains .
Well, any clues?
Thanks for the reply.
There are two possible workarounds in this case:
1. Import the source again and do not change a thing.
2. Extract the damaged output file and delete the "?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" line. Then compress .jar again.
Neither of these are timesavers
I'll be still hoping to see a solution for this problem.
Sounds like the time to report a bug.
