Glossary Restyling Script

I'm using Robohelp HTML, version 11, and generating a WebHelp output.

I'm running the Glossary Restyling script to change the style of the glossary hotspot display to be a "Tooltip."

There are two issues. The first issue, I don't think is related to the script, but something that has been around in RH for a while with the glossary hotspots. Robohelp seems to put an extra space at the end of the glossary term that is a hotspot. This is fine if the hotspot isn't at the end of a sentence next to a period or prior to some other punctuation mark, such as a comma. You can fix this "extra space" by simply removing it in the editor. Otherwise, there doesn't seem to be a way to get rid of this extra space. Is there a workaround to fix this unwanted "extra space" that displays in the output between a hotspot and a punctuation mark? 

The second issue seems to be that in using the Glossary Restyling script, even though I selected "Tooltip" as the type, this seems to work willy-nilly, where some hotspots display in the form of tooltips and some still display as expanded text. Is this a known issue, and if so is there a fix?

Thank you,

Barb
