    How do I declare the insert array to be a global variable so the form can view it as well?  Do I declare it in the script containing the setup function or elsewhere?

    Hi Derek,
    I would like the update the script to take every other character as the value to insert and the adjacent character as the display for the button.  (Or some other way to specify a display character so the writers can identify it.  It might also work to give a description of the character.)
    I tried setting the buttons to take the even values in the array for display and to take the odd ones to insert but it didn't work.  The even values display but nothing is inserted.  I reduced the file to take 50 buttons instead of 128 for now.
    I am attaching the xft file – let me add this is my first time using XMetaL developer so there may be some obvious mistakes there.
    Thanks,
    Leora

    I am just curious, why do you say that DITA doesn't support nested tables?  We have used nested tables in DITA 1.1

    Hi Derek,

    I have downloaded the macro and added the non-breaking hyphen to the txt file.  I used the macro to add the character to a file, and on output seems to work.

    I have two questions about customizing the special character:

    • Can I change the symbol displayed for the character to something more recognizable as non-breaking hyphen?  If so how?
    • Can I change the appearance of the character in the normal view in XmetaL so it looks different from a regular hyphen?

    Thanks,
    Leora
