Topics with ampersands (&) show up as question marks (?) inside Help's Search tab

See the attached image.
In the image:
Item A shows the Topic Title inside RH.
Item B shows what I'm typing in the Search tab of the HTML Help file. (I'm typing "GD&T").
Item C shows the list results. Notice that when I type "GD&T" in the search tab, the results return "GD?" ion the list of results.
In short the "T" is missing and the ampersand character shows a question mark character instead.
How can I get it to show an ampersand in this list and not delete the letter following the ampersand.
Thanks in advance,

Some co-workers of mine eventually helped fix this.
In the Topic Title field for topic titles that have the & symbol, you need to type & in place of just an & symbol. This causes the & to appear within the Search tab list results. Note however that if you add this topic onto the Table of Contents, it will display & there, so you will need to rename the TOC to just use &.

  • Ipod showed folder with question mark inside

    Hello,
    my ipod has lately shown a folder with a question mark inside of it when it was started (immediately after the apple symbol).
    Now it shows me, after the apple symbol disappears, a line (from one end of the screen to the other).
    I have an ipod which was introduced in 2003. It has 4 buttons below the screen and below that a wheel. It´s a 20GB.
    I would really appreciate it, if some could help me out and give me some advice.

    Hi Mariondsummer,
    Have you checked the suggestions in these Knowledge Base articles?:

    iPod displays a sad iPod icon
    Also, this post by Mitch, another user here on Apple Discussions, might be worth checking out. It contains a lot of things to try if you get an exclamation point and folder (or a sad iPod icon) on your iPod's screen:

  • My laptop seemed to be frozen and I could not shut down from the menu. I held the power button for a long time and finally it shut off. When I started it again it turned on to show a black screen with an icon of a file folder with a question mark inside

    Any idea what a blank screen with a flashing folder with a question mark inside of it means???

    Ambinder55,
    it means that the forced shutdown corrupted some portion of the internal disk’s filesystem. Which version of OS X is installed on your MacBook Pro?

  • Language:  Filename with characters for arabic turns question mark

    Language: Filename with characters for arabic turns question mark
    OS: Solaris 9
    Machine: Sun-Fire 25K
    There is an adobe distiller software that is configured and a java apps. There are postscript files that are being converted to .pdf format using the adobe distiller. Using the GUI (using the Exceed; for remote access), when they use GUI to convert the postscripts to pdf files, the long filenames have the corresponding characters for arabic reading purpose. This is OK.
    When we use the windows RUN to telnet the server and convert the postscripts to pdf, it gives a question marks characters in the filenames ( this; is a sample; filename; ?? ??? ??; right.pdf )
    We are not sure now if we have to add a package of arabic or a patch to resolve this problem.

    Solution found, I'll post the work around to those who might encounter the same problem.
    Somewhere in the layers of technology (webwork or weblogic I'd guess), the servlet response is encoded into UTF-8 regardless. The encoding in the database was ISO-8859-1. Sending ISO encoded bytes by UTF-8 caused the conflicting character codes (anything above 127) to show up as undefined.
    The fix is to decode the input byte array into ISO-8859 string, then encode that string into UTF-8, which can be send by Weblogic.
    isoConvert = new String(buf, "ISO-8859-1");
    out.write(isoConvert.getBytes("UTF-8"), 0, isoConvert.getBytes("UTF-8").length);

  • What is a grey file with a question mark inside doing on my start up screen

    when i start up my computer instead of the normal apple symbol showing up i get a grey folder that has a white question mark inside and it is flashing. I know that that means that the computer cannot find the operating system. can anyone help or give me a solution to this problem and a way i can fix it.

    There are four general causes of this issue:
    1. The computer's PRAM no longer contains a valid startup disk setting when there aren't any problems with the disk itself. This can be checked for by pressing the Option key and seeing if the drive appears.
    2. The internal drive's directory structure has become damaged. This requires usage of an alternate bootable system to perform the repair.
    3. Critical system files have been deleted. This requires usage of an alternate bootable system to reinstall them.
    4. The internal drive has died or become unplugged. This is the most likely case if the computer took a sharp impact or there are unusual sounds coming from the hard drive's location.

  • Weblogic 12c Servlet Response - Special characters show up as question mark

    My web app is running on Weblogic 12c (12.1.1) using WebWork + Hibernate. The program streams data (bytes making up a pdf) from a CLOB in an Oracle Database to the AsciiStream of the servlet output response. No exceptions are thrown, but the generated pdf contains blank pages. Comparing the bytes of the generated pdf, special characters are showing up as question marks.
    Some of the bytes read in from the database contain 8 bits (correct data), but the bytes that the servlet return contain only 7 (all bytes with 8 bits become "1111111"). The number of bytes returned from the servlet is correct.
    Code:
    //Response is HttpServletResponse
    response.setContentType("application/pdf");
    response.setHeader("Content-Disposition", "inline; filename=\"test.pdf\"");
    out = response.getOutputStream();
    byte[] buf = new byte[16 * 1024];
    InputStream in = clob.getAsciiStream();
    int size = -1;
    while ((size = in.read(buf)) != -1){
    // buf contains the correct data
    out.write(buf, 0, size);
    // other exception handling code, etc
    out.flush();
    out.close();
    "Correct" pdf byte example:
    10011100
    10011101
    1010111
    1001011
    1101111
    11011011
    Incorrect pdf byte example:
    111111
    111111
    1010111
    1001011
    1101111
    111111
    I have verified that the data read from the CLOB in the database IS correct. My guess is that the Weblogic server has some strange servlet settings that causes the bytes to be written to the servlet output stream incorrectly, or a character encoding issue. Any ideas?

  • File folder with question mark inside of it

    I have an older MacBook and a couple of days ago upon turning on the Mac a file folder appeared with a question mark inside of it. What does it mean and how do I fix the problem. Thanks

    That folder with the question mark icon means that the MacBook can't find the boot directory. That can either mean it can't find the hard drive or the Operating System data on the hard drive is somehow corrupted.
    Put your install DVD into the optical drive and reboot. As soon as you hear the boot chime, hold down the "c" key on your keyboard (or the Option key until the Install Disk shows up). That will force your MacBook to boot from the install DVD in the optical drive.
    When it does start up, you'll see a panel asking you to choose your language. Choose your language and press the Return key on your keyboard once. It will then present you with an Installation window. Completely ignore this window and click on Utilities in the top menu and scroll down to Disk Utility and click it. When it comes up is your Hard Drive in the list on the left?
    If it is then click on the Mac OS partition of your hard drive in the left hand list. Then select the First Aid Tab and run Repair Disk. The Repair Disk button won't be available until you've clicked on the Mac OS partition on your hard drive. If that repairs any problems run it again until the green OK appears and then run Repair Permissions.
    If your hard drive isn’t recognized in Disk Utility then your hard drive is probably dead.

    My laptop opened with a grey flashing file folder with a question mark inside it .  How do  I open my laptop!  I have tried force closing several times and restArting  nope !  nada!  Suggestions?

    That folder with the question mark icon means that the MacBook can't find the boot directory. That can either mean it can't find the hard drive or the Operating System data on the hard drive is somehow corrupted.
    With 10.4, 10.5 or 10.6 put your install DVD into the optical drive (CD/DVD drive) and reboot. Be sure to either use the disc that came with your Mac, or, if you installed a later Mac OS X version from disc, use the newer disc. As soon as you hear the boot chime, hold down the "c" key on your keyboard (or the Option Key until the Install Disk shows up) until the apple shows up. That will force your MacBook to boot from the install DVD in the optical drive.
    Or if you are running 10.7 Lion, 10.8 Mountain Lion or 10.9 Mavericks, boot from the recovery partition (Command +R on boot) and use Disk Utility to repair your OS 10.7, 10.8 or 10.9 partition.
    When it does start up, you'll see a panel asking you to choose your language. Choose your language and press the Return key on your keyboard once. It will then present you with an Installation window. Completely ignore this window and click on Utilities in the top menu and scroll down to Disk Utility and click it. When it comes up is your Hard Drive in the list on the left?
    If it is, then click on the Mac OS partition of your hard drive in the left hand list. Then select the First Aid Tab and run Repair Disk. The Repair Disk button won't be available until you've clicked on the Mac OS partition on your hard drive. If that repairs any problems run it again until the green OK appears and then run Repair Permissions. After repairing use Startup Disk from the same menu to choose your hard drive for restarting from your hard drive.
    If your hard drive isn’t recognized in Disk Utility then your hard drive is probably dead.

  • White screen with a folder and a question mark in the Folder

    Hi,
    My daughter's Desktop Mac Pro won't reboot. On reboot, it shows a white screen with a folder and a question mark within, It just stays there and nothing happens. Is this a problem with a dead hard drive, dead processor, faulty USB connection, problem with airport.? We need advise and help, please!
    effie imperio

    Hi, Anonymoustache, thanks for responding.
    Yes, I think it is "a flashing question mark". If it is flashing, you think it is a hardware problem like a dead hard drive? I had a flashing question mark with my Power book G4 and Apple replaced a dead hard drive.
    Thanks Hatter, I will convey your response to my daughter and see if it will help.

  • My Macbook Pro won't start up. All I get is a grey screen showing a grey folder bearing a question mark. Help please!

    My Macbook Pro won't start up. All I get is a grey screen showing a grey folder bearing a question mark. Help please!

    The folder with the question mark indicates that the machine is unable to find a bootable volume on startup. This is typically caused by one of three things:
    1.) The internal HD has failed or is failing and needs to be replaced
    2.) There is significant directory damage to the volume that requires repairing in order to boot
    3.) Some other internal component failure between the HD and logic board
    I'd ranked them in the order that is most common (from my personal experience). Boot to the OS X Recovery tool and attempt to repair the startup volume. If that fails or the drive is not detected it's usually a tell tale sign of a failed HD.

  • Upgraded to ios6 on my iphone 3gs and email is not displaying images. It has a blue box with a blue question mark inside

    I just upgraded to ios 6 on my iphone 3gs and I noticed on a couple of incoming emails that the images and information are not being displayed. There is a blue square box with a blue question mark inside. I already tried to press the home key and power key to restart. The email still does not display correctly. I went on my laptop to retrieve that same email and I was able to see the graphics and information, so the problem is on the iphone. I received two emails like this, so I'm missing all the important information. I also tried to retrieve my email through the internet browser and I still have the same problem. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    I forgot to mention that I have an Ipad 2 also and I can view the email information on there also. I received an email from Party city and it said to click here to print out the coupon. So I click the coupon and there is the little blue box with the question mark. This is the first time I've seen this happen, as I have printed out the coupons before. Maybe it has to do with the IOS6 update, because this just started to happen right after the update.

    You may have  moved or removed content on your page or  its possible you  used the"Adjust Image" and over sharpeed one or more images.
    I assume  you mean it does not show up of new Chapter pages... have you checked the  template?
    Where you see the  ?    you  need to either reduce teh  box outline size - or drop anther  copy of the original image onto  it, it may  fill the  ? box or sit on top.... delete the ? box.
    If its Chapter page only related, its  better doing this in the template.
