Hi all,

I've posted the same on the Robo forum community - so far no one's
responded. Is there anyone on this list who's using RoboHTML 2002 that can
help me out?

We're working on an application that has screen names with brackets around
it e.g. (Screen1). The developers want the See Also keyword for the help
topic to be the same as the screen name. The help format we're using it
RoboHTML v2002.

When i set a See Also keyword to (Screen1), the topic associated to the
screen does not display when the Help button on the screen is pressed.
However, when i use a See Also keyword and a screen name without brackets,
the correct topic is displayed. The problem is, the developers do not want
to change their 1000 screens that have screen names with brackets. How do
i convince them that this is necessary? Is there a rule somewhere for See
Also keywords and whether special characters can be used for it?

I've trawled the Robo knowledgebase and the RoboHTML online help file, but
can't seem to find any See Also keyword rules. Thanks in advance,
