I want to convert Framemaker files to the Responsive HTML. I want the miniTOC for each chapter to convert to links without a page number reference. I want the same for other cross references-convert to hyperlink without page reference since it is HTML help and not linear.

You can control that with the mapping you do in your Publish Settings file to map FM paragraph and character tags to styles in the CSS.

Can you be a little more specific? Do I pick an output style like Extract and somehow change it to ne a hyperlink? Or am I wanting to create styles in Framemaker that are hyperlinked?

From Publish

Choose Responsive HTML5

Choose Edit Settings

Make sure the Style Mapping Tab is selected

Choose Cross Reference

Select the Cross Reference style that you use in your doc

Make sure that the building blocks selected do not include page numbers. (generally paraText only)

The mini TOC is a bit tricky.

I was helped with this by Rick Quatro.

You have to make a new definition for the mini TOC on the reference page, without the page numbers. (Remove the <$pagenum> building block from the help paragraphs)

Set a condition called Help (or something similar) on the reference page

Then before generating the help, you have to open all the files, apply this condition, do update book, and the Mini TOC appears without page numbers.

Hope this is what you wanted
