I’m using Robohelp version 126.96.36.1991 and I successfully upgraded a project in Robohelp 9 from Robohelp 7. However, in the source at the top of the files, the doctype shows as HTML instead of XHTML as follows:
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN">
My co-worker who is using the same version of RH 9 upgraded this same project and her doctype shows as XHTML as follows:
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN"
Shouldn’t the source show XHTML when using RH 9? And, if so, shouldn’t this have automatically converted when I upgraded the project from RH 7? Is there a setting or something I need to change to show this?
I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling RH 9 several times and reconverted the project, as well, in case there was some problem with the install or the conversion, and have not had any success. I have also applied the 9.0.2 update after running the installation. Thanks for your help.
Try Tools > Upgrade DHTML effects in topics. Does that help?
Yes, that solved the problem. Thank you so much. I had no idea about that option. I kept thinking something was wrong with the install or my conversion. Thanks again.
