Website Output does not work locally in chrome

Hi all,

Unfortunately, it seems that the website output does not work in google chrome if viewed locally - chrome considers each file to be its own origin and doesn't allow to access the embedded IFrame DOM from the index.html (and vice versa) in that case. Delivering the pages from a web server is fine (same origin policy is handled differently).

Has anyone else encountered this issue and perhaps found a quick workaround? I guess it should be possible to modify the js (I think it's the TOC.js) or perhaps get rid of that IFrame.

Unfortunately, using a different help file format is no option for us.

Run Chrome with the command line option "--disable-web-security" as noted in the message box that displays when you try to open the website locally without the option.  That turns off the security and lets you open the website.
