Dear all,
I work with Studio 2009 SP3. I have received XML files for technical documentation based on DITA. Studio imports the files, but the segmentation is a problem. Every time a sentence contains an index term, a line break is entered before and again after the term, the result being that every single sentence is chopped up. I cannot merge the segments (nor do I want to with 15,000 odd words to process).

So how do I tell Studio that certain strings of characters (i.e. <indexterm>, </indexterm>) should
(a) not to cause line breaks and
(b) be recogised as tags?

I'd appreciate any pointers. I haven't found anything in the SDL knowledge base.
