Font Awesome (sigh) in a single topic

Postby chuck_agari on Thu Aug 09, 2018 5:47 pm

Flare 2018, Windows 10 Pro, VMware, MBP

So I followed Danial Ferguson's instructions (https://www.smartoutput.com/using-fonta ... ml-output/) exactly. (Well, not quite; the current CDN does not have the defer attribute that he documents adjusting for Flare's XHTML.) Because I (currently) want a few icons in just one topic, I added the CDN in the head of the topic:

<head>
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.2.0/css/solid.css" integrity="sha384-wnAC7ln+XN0UKdcPvJvtqIH3jOjs9pnKnq9qX68ImXvOGz2JuFoEiCjT8jyZQX2z" crossorigin="anonymous" />
<link rel="stylesheet" href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.2.0/css/fontawesome.css" integrity="sha384-HbmWTHay9psM8qyzEKPc8odH4DsOuzdejtnr+OFtDmOcIVnhgReQ4GZBH7uwcjf6" crossorigin="anonymous" />
</head>

Then I added this as test code (in a table cell): <i class="fa fa-sign-out" title="user.sudorg_logout"></i>

In the XML editor, I see only the <i></i> start end end tags, which seem weird. The code looks fine though; Flare didn't decide it needed to "fix" anything. I sort of expected that the XML editor wouldn't be able to render this. But when I preview the HTML5 topic. there's nothing in the table cell.

So I do a build. I still see nothing in the table cell in the topic (in Firefox). I look at the source code. This is what I see in the output head:

}

}

</style>
<link href="https://use.fontawesome.com/releases/v5.2.0/css/solid.css" rel="stylesheet" />

<script src="../../Resources/Scripts/MadCapAll.js">
</script>
</head>

There, as the first two entries in the script tag, references to Font Awesome. Only thing is, Flare stripped out two of the attributes.

Down in the table, the code is untouched:

<td><i class="fa fa-sign-out" title="user.sudorg_logout"></i>

So....what's going on?

Follow up: I also found this, from MadWorld a year ago: https://www.madcapsoftware.com/blog/201 ... e-outputs/

It's not specific to Font Awesome. But it does state that for HTML5 output, the fonts must be downloaded and placed in a Fonts folder. Is this going to be my solution? Will I not be able to refer to CDNs? I mean I can do this pretty easily: https://fontawesome.com/how-to-use/on-t ... e-yourself

BTW, I forgot to mention, I got a really odd error message when I tried to preview the HTML5 topic:

Cannot copy file

Woo! This worked?

Can I just say I'm enjoying following The Continuing Adventures of Chuck Agari? :)
Seriously though, thanks for posting all the things you're trying.

So I use a combination of approaches for FontAwesome to work.

I have the fonts installed on my system for print output. I also have the webfonts hosted with my documentation so I can reference them via font-face and use them in pseudo elements etc. I also have the JS method configured so I can use the <i></i> tags. Any help you need, let me know and yes, it is normal to see just the <i></i> tags in Flare as the i2svg conversion is handled by the browser after the project is built.

As much as I post when I need some help, I know that the trials--and solutions--could possibly help others, and that's what forums such as this are really all about, and so I try to share as much of the excruciating detail as I can.
