By selecting Master Page in the output options you have told RoboHelp to apply that Master Page to all topics and that master page has been setup by you to have the default styles.
Try changing the Master Page to use the CSS you want or changing the option from Master Page to CSS.

I expect the HTML you're concerned with to be using the <para class="FM_(Style name from FM inserted here)">
If so, you'll want to map the FM para style to something in your CSS.
Peter is right, though, if your RH master page is using something other than your conversion CSS (RHStyleMapping.css by default) then you'll not likely get the formatting you are looking for
Thanks. I understand what you are saying.
I had read the "Using Master pages in RoboHelp 8" article online. The way I read this article, I thought perhaps I could get away without having a .css associated with the Master Page, but instead use the ones from the topics themselves. Either I read it incorrectly, it doesn't apply to RH 9 (it was written about RH 8), or it's a bug.
- A user may still want to use a layout from a Master Page and the CSS from the Topic itself. This may also be achieved by applying a Master Page having None CSS attached and corresponding layout present. Doing this will apply only layout from the Master Page on the resulting topics and CSS of the topics will be the same as in topics and hence may be different for the topics in the output.
thanks for your help,
There's always 6 different ways to do these things, so "your mileage may vary" based on what you want to accomplish.
For me, there's no "Best" but only "Best in a given context"
