I am using Robohelp 2017. I've created a paragraph style for notes. That's how I did: I would like to create a list usings dashes (nonbreaking hyphens). I have many helps that are already using this style.
When I export to CHM file it appears OK, no problems. So far so good. I haven't noticed before because I was only exporting to CHM format. The problem is that when I generate to HTML5 output my dashes become numbers! Why does it happen? How do I solve it?

Check the HTML view of the RH topic - does RH think your dashes are an ordered list "ol" or unordered list "ul"? I bet it thinks that it's an ordered list and that your CSS doesn't know how to preserve the dashes (which really should be an unordered list)
I just concluded helping another person where the CSS file name was the culprit. I notice that your CSS file name contains an accented character.
Perhaps the same thing is happening here? I'd try renaming the CSS so there are no spaces and no odd (accented) characters. Then generate again and see if the result is what you want.
Unfortunately I can't rename my CSS because then I lose all paragraph and character styles I've created so far (more than 30). I think this is more problematic than fixing the bullet issue...
You should be able to rename it within RH and have all the refs to it be preserved - use the "other" view of the Project Manager to reveal the Style Sheets "folder" of css used in your project. Right click to rename...
Now it works! The issue was all about the accented character, indeed! It's good to know to avoid using it! 😃 You're geniuses! Thank you again!
