I have discovered that working with the multilevel list and reapplying it (changing a level 2 to a level 1, for example) inserts numerous <span style margin> tags that don't show up in RH design view nor in an IE view of the published content, but the published help renders badly in Firefox (like a "justified" paragraph style that inserts broad spacing between words).
The bad thing is that broad spacing is added to a command where no spaces should be, which looks fine in IE, but renders like this in Firefox:
@C:\xbrl_database\database\Oracle\ verify_registration _v1_0 _1 .sql
The "source" for published content looks like this:
<p class="CodeSample" style="margin-left: 24px;">sqlplus XBRLDB/XBRLDB@server.com:1521/ubmatrix
@C:\xbrl_database\database\Oracle\<span style="margin-left: 40px;">verify_registration</span>
<span style="margin-left: 40px;">_v1_0</span><span style="margin-left: 40px;">_1</span>
<span style="margin-left: 40px;">.sql</span></p>
How do I prevent the <span> tags from getting added to the RH project files? How do I remove them using the RH interface?
Why are they getting added in such wierd places?
PS: I have kept the paragraph style Numlist (which is how I define numbered procedures). I just apply the multilevel list to paragraphs tagged with this style. It's been working OK, except for the newly discovered problem above.
I'm using Verdana family and the numbers look good. I've only looked at the published HTML which looks like this: I
<p class="Numlist">1<span style='font:6.0pt "Times New Roman"'><font size="1" style="font-size:6pt;"> </font></span>Do this</p>
looks like this in a broser view:
1 Do this
Is this the 'expected' HTML code for numbered procedures (all this to precede a paragraph with a number), or is there a more efficient way to render numbered/mutilevel lists?
I mis-stated the problem in the previous post. There's a problem with phantom or residual embedded <span style="margin-left: XXpx;">
Here's an example in a plain paragraph under "See also"
<p><a href="Mapping_Techniques.htm"><span style="margin-left: 40px;">M</span>apping
Here's TWO of them embedded in a numbered procedure (this multilevel list setting is from a different ):
<?rh-list_start ?><p class="Numlist">C<span style="margin-left: 40px;">lick
the </span><span style="margin-left: 40px; font-weight: bold;">Validation</span><span
style="margin-left: 40px;"> tab.</span></p><?rh-list_end ?>
Here's an example in a list paragraph:
<li><p>Microsoft Security Update Patch <a title="MS06-038" href="http://support.microsoft.com/kb/917284">MS06-038</a> You must manually
reset the<span style="margin-left: 40px;"> registry key to:</span></p></li>
All these lead to spacing problems in the published help.
I just created a small video that may be helpful for this.
