    TOC not displaying in translated files

    SladeG

      Using RH8 (HTML).

       

      Translating English RH source files using TRADOS TagEditor.

       

      Translations to Chinese and Japanese have worked fine.

       

      In translations to European languages the TOC does not display in RH nor compiled chm.

       

      This appears to be caused by the use of 'alpha codes' for the extended character set. For example, an .hhc file with

       

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

      <toc version="1.0"><properties imagewidth="16" windowstyles="8388642" exwindowstyles="256"></properties>

                      <item name="Introducci&oacute;n">

                      </item>

      </toc>

       

      does not display.

       

      But one with

       

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

      <toc version="1.0"><properties imagewidth="16" windowstyles="8388642" exwindowstyles="256"></properties>

                      <item name="Introducción">

                      </item>

      </toc>

       

      or

       

      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

      <toc version="1.0"><properties imagewidth="16" windowstyles="8388642" exwindowstyles="256"></properties>

                      <item name="Introducci&#243;n">

                      </item>

      </toc>

       

      does display.

       

      Unfortunately, on return from the translators our .hhc files are littered with 'alpha codes' for extended characters.

       

      Any confirmation of our suspicions and suggestions as to:

       

      1) How we can rectify the situation, bearing in mind that a manual replacement is not an option due to the number of files and occurrences within those files.

       

      2) What should have been done to stop this happening.

       

      would be gratefully received.
