We have tracked this issue down.

Everyone seems to agree that the current behavior is not wanted and we are looking into a fix. We have a few other fixes for Webhelp (mostly multilingual-related things) and we hope to be able to roll them all together.

Our normal procedure for any fixes is to include them in a future release (meaning you would need to wait and then upgrade to get them). However, in this case there is a chance we can get something to you sooner, depending the changes that need to be made to an existing XMetaL Author Enterprise 6.0 installation (and even if we were to offer that it would need to come with some caveats).

Current behavior:

  • Map title specified as both element and attribute: Webhelp shows the attribute value
  • Map title specified as element only: Webhelp shows our own hard-coded default string “HTML Help”
  • Map title specified as attribute only: Webhelp shows the attribute value

Desired corrected behavior:

  • Map title specified as both element and attribute: Webhelp shows the element value
  • Map title specified as element only: Webhelp shows the element value
  • Map title specified as attribute only: Webhelp shows the attribute value
