Is your help in English only?
Or other language that manages with Latin 1 characters?
UTF-8 is pretty handy when you get even slightly more exotic characters.
Otherwise, I am sure Peter has it right.
Well, Peter's tool did exactly what it said it would. However, turning off unicode turned out not to be the source of the problem! :-(
The developer figured out that what caused the problem is the very first line of HTML source code on each topic which starts out with <?xml......>. It has something to do with the PHP interpreter not being able to interpret it. I did a global search and replace in DreamWeaver to remove this line from all the files in the generated output and now it works great. So my only remaining question is... is there a setting in RoboHelp that would cause RoboHelp to not put that first line of code in so that I don't have to manually remove it after I generate each time? It's not a huge deal to do the manual search and replace but it's one more thing to remember.
Thanks again for all the help so far.
What if you click Tools > Options and enable the option labeled Convert RoboHelp edited topics to HTML? Does that help?
As luck would have it, I was just today experimenting with this option.
