Note regarding WWP 7 and 2003

WebWorks Publisher Professional 7 and 2003 contain character mappings for the codepages 1250, 1251, 1253, 1254, and 1257, like you need them for MS HTML Help 1.x. Unfortunately the Euro sign is not supported by these mappings. And those mappings do not support the Unicode standard UTF-8, i.e. you can only use characters from a single codepage in a single WebWorks Publisher project. If you have a Russian project, you cannot use any accented characters from other European languages like á, é, è, Ä, Ö, or Ü.

Character Mapping for CE (Central Europe) Fonts

Applies to: WebWorks Publisher 6 WebWorks Publisher 7 WebWorks Publisher 2003 (see note)

Supported languages: Polish (pl), Romanian (ro), Slovak (sk), Slovenian (sl), Czech (cz), Hungarian (hu).

Required for using this Character Mapping are fonts which contain the glyphs in the Windows codepage order. This can be achieved most easily using so-called "virtual fonts", which do not exist for themselves on your computer, but are created using Registry entries for all applications that do not support the Unicode standard. E.g., based on the font Arial one can make available the characters of the Central-European codepage Windows-1250 in a virtual font Arial CE.

My offer

I created Character Mappings for all characters of codepage 1250, which can be used with all versions of WebWorks Publisher and which created characters according to the following standards:

  • Unicode UTF-8
  • Windows-1250 (already available in WWP 7 and 2003)

Buy this Character Mapping individually or the complete Character Mapping Collection!

Known issues

There are two characters in codepage 1250 which cannot be handled directly by Adobe FrameMaker:

  • The Polish character Zacute (Ź) is at ANSI position 143, for which FrameMaker does not accept text characters.
  • The Czech and Slovak characters tcaron (ť) is at ANSI position 157, for which FrameMaker always displays the Symbol font character seconds (²) instead of the original font's character.

There are different work-around options, the easiest one is the following:

  • Instead of Zacute Ź use a simple Z.
  • Instead of tcaron ť use the two characters t and quoteright: t.

Should you require full support for those two characters, please contact me.

MS HTML Help 1.x

If you create MS HTML Help 1.x you cannot use Unicode encoding, you have to use codepage encoding. To make things even more complicated, you have to know that you can compile a CE help file successfully only after changing the system locale of your computer to the help's language.

Installation of Unicode support

You receive the file archive CharSet1250.zip.

  1. Unzip the contained files: Unicode_1250_CE_Charset.wdt, Codepage_1250_CE_Charset.wdt, and test file FM_CharacterSet_ANSI_1250-7.mif.
  2. Open Unicode_1250_CE_Charset.wdt. Do not migrate the project, if WebWorks Publisher offers this option.
  3. Open your WebWorks Publisher project or template and make it the active project.
  4. Choose Style > Import.
    Settings in dialog box Style Import
  5. In the dialog box that appears

    • under Items to Import select the Styles check box
    • under Specific Styles to Import select the Character Mappings check box
    • in the Import From list select Unicode_1250_CE_Charset.wdt
  6. Click OK to perform the import.
  7. Make sure the character encoding of your project is set to "Unicode (UTF-8)" (Options tab of the project's dialog box).
  8. Choose Project > Properties (WWP2003: Mappings) and select the Mappings > Font tab.
    Mapping for CE fonts
  9. Set the mapping for all CE fonts to the new Character Mapping "UnicodeCE" (therefore your WebWorks Publisher project has to contain at least one file that uses such a font, e.g. the delivered test file).

Installation of Codepage support

Proceed as descibed above, but import the Character Mapping from file Codepage_1250_CE_Charset.wdt.

Make sure your project's character encoding is set to "CE 1250 (Windows-1250)" (Options tab of the project's dialog box). All text fonts in your project will be encoded using this codepage. Of course you should have used only CE fonts!

How to test the new setup

  1. Add the test document FM_CharacterSet_ANSI_1250-7.mif to your project.
  2. Make sure the font mapping is done accordingly (see above).
  3. Generate the HTML files and compare the result with the original file.
