We are creating on-line help by exporting FrameMaker files to HTML Help
*.htm, *.hhc, *.hhk, *.hhp, etc. files with mif2go. This process is going

I opened the *.hhp project file in RoboHtml to add a glossary and created a
couple of dummy entries in order to see what file was created. This turned
out to be a simple *.glo text file with the format

Definition for term1.
Definition for term2.


We already had a glossary in FrameMaker format so, with only a tiny amount
of skulduggery, we were able to export it as a text file, remove the
group-title headings (A for the A entries, B for the B entries, etc.),
remove some extraneous tabs, and merge multiple definition paragraphs into
single paragraphs under each term. Beauoooootiful!

The glossary even shows up okay in RoboHtml's Glossary tab. But when we
compile and open the *.chm file, there IS NOT GLOSSARY! Yes, we have
already installed the HHActiveX.DLL both in the \winnt\system folder and,
for safety, in the same folder as the *.chm file, registered the *.dll, and
restarted Windows 2000. Still no glossary ...

Anybody have any ideas?
