Export Glossary Documents and its content to HTML

When attempting to save a BuildingBlock as HTML, I get the following error:

Exception in thread "main" java.lang.IllegalStateException: Children nodes of GlossaryDocument aren't supported!
	at com.aspose.words.zzZVJ.zzYN(Unknown Source)
	at com.aspose.words.Node.toString(Unknown Source)

Why can I not save nodes inside the GlossaryDocument in the same was as other nodes? How can I work around this?

I see you have logged it as a WORDSNET issue. Just so we’re clear, I’m using Java.


Please note that Aspose.Words for Java is completely auto-ported from .NET, i.e. we do not write code for Aspose.Words for Java; it is generated out automatically from C# code of Aspose.Words for .NET. In your case, the issue which was logged with WORDSNET prefix, would be auto resolved for Java variant of Aspose.Words.
