In my framemaker doc I have text boxes that contain cross reference links to other sections in the same doc. These are valid within the FM doc, but invalid in the html5 output.
example - FM doc with X-Ref dialog box:
when I published to html5 responsive output, the boxes became flat images and the hypertext laid flat, no links.
I see in the publish settings things like Options - use html page template and override styles;
If I evoke the Edit-Settings dialog, are there any settings that effect the x-ref links validate inside text boxes? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Anyone who can help will want to know what version of FM.
As I don't yet use the HTML output pathway, what object type are the boxes in the source document?
In the workflow settings, another thing to check would be graphics conversions. Older FMs, and possibly still as default, things like FrameArt, SVG & imported PDFs were flattened to JPG or GIF. I'd expect that to trash any hypertext in them.
Sorry about that, the FM Version is 2019. Also, my 'text boxes' are actually frames, and each frame is in a cell in a table. Not sure where I find Graphic Conversion settings in FM. Of note, I installed a trial version of RH 2019, but I am generating/ publishing through FM, as in File-Publish-Responsive HTML5, generate, publish. I found a workaround; made the box frames hotspots and configured each to go where it should go, but I am still perplexed as to why the cross reference links in each frame are not appearing as links in the html5 output. Outside of that issue I have one more. I am seeing that only heading 1 creates a topic in the output, with the headings 2-4 simply appearing below it instead of as new topics. I ticked the Automap checkbox but that did not create the topics. Any advice in this regard?
re: Also, my 'text boxes' are actually frames, and each frame is in a cell in a table.
Anchored Frame in the cell text, and then Text Frame inside the AF?
re: Not sure where I find Graphic Conversion settings in FM.
This is probably not the problem, but I see a couple here:
File » Publish » Responsive HTML5 » Settings » Edit
☐ Convert SVG to Raster image
Style Mapping » Image Settings
Advanced: Default Format [As Is]
Thanks Bob, Im all set now, just made all my images containing x-ref links into hotspots, so this thread is now closed. Cheers!
