I found the .exe under the program folder:
I was looking under the RoboHTML folder
That tool is unnecessary for your current needs. BTW, this RH tool only finds (and replaces) threads that appear on the same line. You need a tool like FAR to do more.
Instead, set your OL style in the CSS file ( see how here).
Thank you very much.
As I am testing the Multi File Find and Replace tool, I agree it doesn't seem to be the right tool.
I am using RH as the HTML editor and the kadov tags are getting in the way with the find and replace. I am concerned that that may be the case also if I use FAR.
I do have a .css applied, but because the files were imported from a WinHelp project, some of the .css styles are not automatically applied. I am looking for a quick way to replace the WinHelp list style with the .css style.
Thanks again. I need luck!
You might try ReplaceEm - it handles multiple lines, allows for variable text within the search field, saves search patterns as scripts for reuse later, and it's free....
I would also recommend using DreamWeaver for your editor, or something you like personally that creates clean markup.
There is probably no "quick way to replace the WinHelp list style with the .css style."
Why? Because the "cascading" in Cascading Style Sheets works this way:
1. Styles in an external style sheet,
are superceded by...
2. Styles in a style sheet section of the current topic,
which are superceded by...
3. Separate character or paragraph style instances (SPAN tags, etc.).
If you have a lot of 2 & 3 (very likely with a converted Winhelp project), what you've done in 1 gets ignored.
