Problem with Wingdings symbols when saving to HTML

Hi,

I'm using the latest version Aspose.Words for .NET 11.5.0.0. When I'm saving 2003 Word files as HTML Wingdings symbols used in Word document got replaced with the other symbols. For example in the document I've attached we use arrow-down symbol but when converted to HTLM it got replaced with hand-writing symbol. It happens in Internet Explorer 8.0. When I'm opening the same HTML in FireFox I can see correct symbol. The problem is that we need it to work properly with IE.

It's been really long time. Do you plan fixing it at all?

Hi Andrew,


Thanks for your inquiry. You are right, there appears to have been many delays in the resolution of this issue. I will get a firm estimate on this issue and provide you some further feedback. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Best regards,

Hi Andrew,


Thanks for being patient.

Our development team has completed the analysis of your issue. The problem occurs because of a known issue with IE8. Aspose.Words exports characters of symbolic fonts as code points of the Private Unicode Area which are not recognized by IE8 in quirks (compatibility) mode. Unfortunately, this issue cannot be resolved completely; however as a workaround, you can force IE8 to process the HTML document in standard mode by setting the following option on export:

HtmlSaveOptions.ExportXhtmlTransitional = true;

I hope, this helps.

Please let us know if this workaround is acceptable for you. We will most likely close WORDSNET-6612 with “Won’t fix” resolution. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Best regards,
Hi,

I'm very sorry to share with you that on further investigation our development team came to know that they won't be able to implement the fix to your issue. Your issue is now closed with ''Won't Fix'' resolution. This means the issue is not actually fixed but closed because this is not related to Aspose.Words. If we can help you with anything else, please feel free to ask.

Best regards,

The issues you have found earlier (filed as WORDSNET-6612) have been fixed in this .NET update and this Java update.
