Output from RoboHelp HTML 2002
Notes from MJ Plaster
- RoboHelp HTML creates a set of "working HTML files" as you create topics. These "working files" contain "one-size-fits-all" HTML code, suitable for all output formats. This is probably intended as HTML that can be rendered in a wide variety of browser/operating system combinations. However, RoboHelp retains all elements of the "working HTML code" regardless of which output format you generate, rather than filtering out the code that is unnecessary for your chosen output format. In the case of HTML Help, RoboHelp sends the working HTML files in the project directory along with the project files directly to the HTML Help compiler.
- You'll notice that RoboHelp's CSS files contain KADOV tags. These tags
help RoboHelp HTML render the topics in RoboHelp's WYSIWYG editor. These
tags are not stripped out during target generation, and in fact references
to these KADOV styles are included throughout the HTML files RoboHelp
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 RoboHelp HTML contains both of these required elements.
