How to import XML files into Flare V6

Postby maxxikk on Wed Jul 28, 2010 7:14 am

I would like to import some XML files into Flare (and make an Online Help of them). How can I do it?

You can't import XML files as such; Flare doesn't know the structure of your files and how to convert them to XHTML.

What you'd need to do is convert it to a format that Flare can import; e.g. use a XML transformation (such as XSLT) to convert your XML into XHTML, then import the XHTML files.

I know that you can import an XML file into RoboHelp 8 using customized CSS/XSL file (without converting into XHTML).
I thought it was possible to do the same in Flare...
