I had an & sign in some file names (like "backup & restore") in Frame. WWP did not like the special characters. I kept getting a fatal error when generating my help file and the javascript would never work. Once those & signs were eliminated from all file names, the help generated fine and no more problems with the Javascript.

Hi, guys...the powers that be have decided that an application name will
have a plus sign in it. (example: POSADA+)

Does anyone know of any issues, either in helps, web, FM file/books, or
otherwise, where using a + in a file name (example: posada+.exe,
posada+.chm, posada+.html, etc) would be an issue?
