Join David Rivers for an in-depth discussion in this video Generating compliant WebHelp, part of RoboHelp 9 HTML Essential Training.
If you think you're going to be producing WebHelp projects for the federal…government, you'll have to know about 508 compliance. Or if you want to ensure…that your topics are going to work right and everything you see in a web browser…is going to look the way you want it to, you might consider something else…called W3C Compliance.…That's what we are going to talk about in this lesson.…Now 508 compliance might strip out a lot of the bells and whistles, like…skins, for example.…But you will know that your contents, your index, and your search areas are all…going to be 508 compliant, and they are going to work properly.…
With W3C compliance, sometimes what browsers will do, if they see HTML code they…don't really recognize, is try to interpret it, and you could end up with…gibberish; sometimes you'll even crash the actual site.…So in this case using W3C-compliance features here in RoboHelp will allow you to…avoid that kind of problem.…So let's continue working with our How To Use LDC project here, and if we go to…

Q: When I insert the ActiveX Calendar control and try to hide the title by setting the ShowTitle property to false, the title is not removed and remains visible. Why is this happening?
A: There are many ActiveX controls available and many versions of a control may exist. Different versions of a control can behave differently. Certain properties may work in one version of a control and not in another. ActiveX controls can be installed on your computer by different programs other than RoboHelp, such as Microsoft Excel and Access. In this title, version 11.0 of the Calendar control is used. If you are using a different version of the Calendar control, the ShowTitle property may not work properly. Go to www.microsoft.com to learn more about ActiveX controls and their properties.
