HTML Help Workshop Woes
After about an hour of struggling, I finally figured out the reason for a weird printing related error in a .chm (compiled HTML file) file.
When you attempt to print the contents of a .chm file using the ‘Print the selected heading and all subtopics’ option, if it throws a weird system exception and/or memory fault, it is most likely due to your HTML code!
In my case, it was because I had used single quotes in all <img src> statements.. like so
When I replaced all such occurrences with the “correct” HTML syntax, it worked as expected!
Ditto for external HTML references and internal links.
It turns out IE is extremely forgiving when it comes to such minor errors but not HH.exe!
