Subject:IE5 and existing HTML Help files From:Gary Robinson <Robinson -at- COMINC -dot- COM> Date:Thu, 20 May 1999 11:05:29 -0400
I have a HTMLHelp file that I wrote with RoboHTML v. 1.00.203. It ran fine
until I upgrade to IE5. I had been using IE4. Now the splash screen doesn't
disappear and the TOC works slowly and occasionally needs to be refreshed
before the "books" will open. The splash will disappear if I click on it
but it leaves a gray square on the screen and I usually have to refresh
before I can use the rest of the Help. My concern is, it is very likely
that one (or most) of our clients will eventually upgrade to IE5 and will
experience these problems at their job site. I'd appreciate hearing from
anyone who has a solution to this situation. Thanks.
