Conversion Problem (size?)
Been wrestling with this a while. I've read about max pages blowing the conversion but...
I have a one page, 4mb html file with about 4000 links which is the output of a PDF "save as" operation. iSiloX runs w/out error and reports "conversion complete." The resultant .pdb is 1094 bytes, very incomplete and none of the links work. Have I exceeded some limit? What is the recommended work-around?
Would you be able to zip the HTML file(s) at issue and email them to so that we can try to reproduce the problem to determine the cause?
Converts fine, except for links
Thanks for sending the file.
The document converted fine to a 105K file, though the links don't work due to an unsupported format for the links. iSiloX only supports links to targets specified with <a name> tags and does not currently have support for link targets that are specified using ID attributes. You would need to rewrite the targets to workaround this. So for example, in the HTML file, the first target is <P ID="LinkTarget_8124">. You would have to replace it with <P><a name="LinkTarget_8124">.
Are you sure the resulting .pdb file came out to 1094 bytes, as that sounds like it would be too small to even have any content with links.
Sorry, I forgot to send you the images folder. I converted without the images and got a 105kb pdb also, but it still stopped way short of converting the entire file.
Meanwhile, I'll worry about what we might do about the links; maybe we just will forget about them.
Thanks for your help so far, and maybe we can figure out why the whole doc doesn't seem to convert.
Reason for incomplete conversion: <server>
With some further investigation into the source HTML file, it turns out that the file has some apparently unintentional instances of the text <server>, which iSilo interprets as server tags. Content enclosed within server tags is assumed to be script, so iSiloX ignores the content of a server element. Whatever program you used to generate the HTML should have replaced the < and > characters with the HTML character entities < and >. If you use a plain text editor and search for "<search" and replace the < and > characters before and after the word server with < and > respectively, then reconvert, you will get the entire text.
Thanks for your continued help. I appreciate the information and excellent support. Love the product.
New beta with id support
There is a new beta of iSiloX that adds support for id attributes as targets of links. This change addresses the issue of the links in your document not working. You can find the beta here.
