    Be sure to check the option under Content to encode special characters.

    Usually, when the importer finds only the title, it means that you haven't found the right tag/attribute/value combination for your content settings. With Frontpage/Word markup, it's very possible that the importer just can't find the tag you've specified -- it tries to read the HTML as XML, and Frontpage markup is often just too messy.

    Keep trying different combinations, and test using the single file upload, until you find something that works.

    Thank's to Stephanie, i changed the tag in the original code and now it works. It is a search for the proper settings, but it less work than import all the files by hand.
    Now it works i have another question, but i post it as a new question
    Thanks for now
    Thea

    Hi Stephanie,

    I configured all tabs and tested HTML Import 2 with a couple of clean XHTML files. But all I got was the title, the content area was blank.

    Again, both files (actually the entire folder) passes the validation test, locally with BBEdit and on the W3C validator site.

    TIA

    Did this ever get resolved. I am having a similar issue and my site was designed with Robohelp.
