Styles not showing up in list.

I went through the forum and found all the threads I could on how to set up the editor so it will show my custom css styles in the drop down list of the editor.

I have already done the following...

I went into the fckeditor.html file and removed the following line so my styles would show up correctly in the editor.
// <meta http-equiv="Cache-Control" content="public">

I can edit content areas and the data saves to the db and shows on my page correctly now.
I set up the editor so I can have images uploaded and they show up correctly in the editor and on the page now.
I edited the css style file and put several styles I want to display in the editor in the drop down list. I also removed the red and blue styles that were in there already.

I went into the wizzard and configured the editor so it would see my css file...

Editor Preset >> Customize >> Styling tab

I then set the Editor css = [my css file]
Body class = [my body style]
I then selected all the styles listed in the edit box and clicked ok.
I saved the style as a preset and clicked ok twice to exit the wizzard.

File data from the edtor config files...


// WebAssist iRite: Rich Text Editor for Dreamweaver
$WARichTextEditor_1 = CreateRichTextEditor ("RapierSoftContent", "../../HTMLEditor/", "945px", "600px", "Default", "../custom/cmstest_RapierSoftContent1.js", "");


FCKConfig.XMLFullName = 'RapierSoft';
FCKConfig.XMLFileName = 'RapierSoft.xml';

Where is this RapierSoft.xml file located? I could not find it on my system...
Also, what is the file for? What is it supposed to contain?


The relative paths are correct and the following files exist.

FCKConfig.EditorAreaCSS = '../../_css/CMS/cms_syle.css';
FCKConfig.BodyClass = 'BodyText';
FCKConfig.StylesXmlPath = '../custom/contents_update_RapiersoftContentStyles1.xml';

The xml file shows the correct styles but not the div definitions...


<style name="BodyText" element="span" >
<Attribute name="class" value="BodyText" />
<style name="Headline" element="span" >
<Attribute name="class" value="Headline" />
<style name="SubHeader" element="span" >
<Attribute name="class" value="SubHeader" />

The HTML Editor is found at: HTMLEditor/

When I go to the page...


The only style that shows up in the list is the old "red" style and it is not even listed in the xml or css file anymore as I have already removed it.

What am I doing wrong?

And while I have you here...

Can you point me at some information that shows how to set up custom divs in the format drop down and div insert dialog?

I would like to have some pre formated divs in the list when I insert a div so I can just select the div type from the list provided. The only way I can get a custom div to show up now is to add the div style to the css file and then hand type in the advanced settings div ID when I create the div. No div styles so up in the div style list at all currently.
