Notes from Paul Neshamkin
- I formatted the text sample in Word to create the example.
- In the "Manual formatting" section, I have used paragraph styles to achieve the indented paragraph example, direct formatting or the use of character styles could not achieve the font-size and font-family changes.
- I have not tweaked tables to match the example's specification as this would have taken considerable effort in the HTML and the .css.
- The nested list is as close as you can get with the current product, which is limited to two levels.
- I have used pass-through code to include the HTML Help popup. I have also used the pass-through feature to include the anchor links at the beginning of the file. The HTML Help Shortcut control is natively supported, but it is by-design, included in the Word source document as pass-through code.
In order for an HTML file to be valid, it must at minimum include both a DOCTYPE statement on the first line of the file and a <meta> tag specifying the correct character set for the file. The HTML file we produced with Doc-To-Help 2000 contains both of these required elements. Nonetheless, both the HTML file and the CSS file contain invalid code.
