    Table style alignment ignored?

    A_Duffy

      TCS 2.0, linking FrameMaker 9 (unstructured) files to RH8.

       

      My FrameMaker files have several one-cell right-aligned tables. I mapped all the tables to a table style called "Product" in RoboHelp.

       

      The table properties in style mapping are set to be right-aligned for this table. However, the table continues to display as left-aligned in the preview and the output.


      I am not very knowledgeable about css but decided to edit the css for this table to specify right-aligned.

      Here is my css entry for this table style:

       

       

      table.Product {
              align: right;
              font-size: 10pt;
              text-align: right;     

       

      }

       

      The table is still left-aligned.

       

      Looking at the HTML view for the table, there is this line:

       

      <?rh-align_start align="left" ?>

       

      When I manually change "left" to "right," my table is right aligned and looks the way I want.  This rh-align_start property seems to be something that is not in the css or is overriding the css.

       

      I can also right-click on the table and select right-aligned from the table properties, which accomplishes the same thing. However, I have thousands of these tables and need an automated solution.

       

      Is this a RH bug? How can I make this table style right-aligned?

       

      Thanks,

      Alexandra
