When you sometimes paste code from an editor into Frame, it looks good in the Frame view and the PDF, but the line breaks are not really new lines, and they do not show up correctly on the HTML output.

We have to ensure that each line in the example has its own ProgramListing structure element.

Fixed in the doc sources.

Which code editor did you paste in from? I've pasted from NetBeans, TextPad, and emacs with no apparent problems.

Comment by rcervera [ 05/Jun/13 ]

I always pasted from NetBeans, and it worked fine 95% of the time. There were a few cases where it did not work properly. The line break characters appear on FrameMaker but several lines where grouped together in the same ProgramListing.

Ricardo's right. You have to be really, really careful how you paste from NB. I think pasting into a new, empty programlisting element works okay, but trying to overwrite existing code can produce strange results. You really have to look not only at the Frame page (where the newlines look fine) but also at the structure to make sure the new code isn't all in one programlisting element.
