Hi, I'm a RoboHelp newbie. I've taught myself RH 7 using a book (just last week.)
We are importing Word documents to RH. A consultant created the Word style sheet and told me to use Strong instead of Bold in Word. I did that. I've imported the document into RH. Now I notice some words that need to have Strong applied to them. I can't find Strong as a style in the .css. (I used the .css that was created from the Word import. There are words in Strong in this document.)
I have two work-arounds right now:
I know I could go back to the Word document and apply Strong there and then import again.
I have copied existing words that are in Strong and pasted them where I need Strong and then changed the word to be what I want.
However, I wondered if it makes a difference in RH whether I continue to use Strong instead of Bold? If so, where do I find Strong? Or can I just use Bold now?
Thanks for any input!
I suspect the consultant told you to use Strong instead of Bold because the latter is deprecated. Simple fact is though that it is still heavily used including by the RoboHelp editor.
You could try adding strong as a character class in your CSS or just use bold in both Word and RoboHelp. I cannot imagine any browser not supporting bold for a long time, even though it is deprecated.

Thanks so much for your advice!
