What special characters typically used in English are restricted from use in a RoboHelp 8 glossary? I need to write a glossary for a software application, and it requires the use of special characters (*, &, <, ( $, #, @, !, etc.). I would like to create the glossary in RoboHelp 8. Is this possible? Specifically, is it possible to categorize alphabetical entries preceded by special characters and have them grouped appropriately when alphabetically sorted?
