    RH 7 project upgraded to RH 9 does not show the doctype as XHTML

    cathysnyder Level 1

      I’m using Robohelp version 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.
