    Loosing dita tags during ant conversion

    jb61539814 Level 1

      At this company, we use a script to convert our .xml files created in FrameMaker into .html files for use in RoboHelp to generate help.

      But I am loosing formatting only in my reference files. We use definitions lists (<dl>) extensively in the reference files but the heading tag (<dlhead><dthd>) is being lost and the heading is displaying just like any other definition tag (<dt>). As shown here:

      Before running ant conversion (.xml):

      <dl>

          <dlhead><dthd>Interval section</dthd></dlhead>

          <dlentry><dt>Interval Type</dt>

          <dd>Select the interval type: Repetitive,

          Not Repetitive, or On Request.</dd></dlentry>

       

      After running ant conversion (.html):

      <dl>

      <dt><strong>Interval section</strong></dt>

      <dt class="dlterm">Interval Type</dt>

      <dd>Select the interval type: Repetitive,

      Not Repetitive, or On Request.</dd>

       

      Since this is immediately after running ant, it can't be a stylesheet problem, but after two hours of diagnostics, I don't know where to look. I am a writer, not a techie.

      Any help is appreciated.
