I'm more than a bit concerned by your mention of "I checked the .css file on the host server and it is as it should be (to the best of my knowledge)."
If you aren't totally certain about that aspect, the rest may be moot.
If you right-click the topic and choose to view the source when viewing from the server, do you find the styling attributes are still there for your text? Assuming they are, the issue would have to be with the CSS file.

If your styling attributes are still in place, as Captiv8r suggested, the following might work for you:
When you create the WebHelp output, RoboHelp creates two style sheets: your normal stylesheet and an ns style sheet. Try replacing the styles in <yourcss>nss.css with:
@import ".css" ;
Which style sheet you use, depends on your browser. IE and Opera get the normal style sheet, while Mozilla and Safari (and Chrome) get the _ns style sheet. RoboHelp actually deletes certain styles from the _ns style sheet, probably to improve cross-browser compatibility. The @import rule insures you get the full functionality of your style sheet.
Sorry about that, I'm still a newbie in HTML. Yes, the styling attributes are in the source.
Here is the style from the .css file:
It is the last style in the file, and there are no LI. styles with that name.
Willam, I use IE, so I should be using the regular style sheet. I will however take note for my users.
According to CSS specifications, you may not use a / within a class definition. Substitute the / for an underscore or delete it.
Did I mention I was a newbie in HTML?
Thank you, so much. I will never make that mistake again.
No problem. One tip: If you ever want to create an new stylesheet, use the W3C CSS Validator to check if your stylesheet is correct. This validator will be your new best friend
