Hi --

I realize this question might be better suited for the WinHelp list, but
I haven't received any mail from that list since Friday. I don't know
what's wrong, so I thought I'd post my question here as well.

Does anyone know if there's a way to create an em dash in a RoboHelp
file without using RoboHelp's bitmap of an em dash? We're using RoboHelp
4.

I'd like to be able to use text instead of a bitmap. The Insert Symbols
method isn't working. The em dashes we think we're creating get turned
into vertical slash marks when we make the .doc file into a .hlp file.

Any suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Stephanie Holland
