Chapter 14. Going Online with QuarkXPress > Web Documents and File Structure

Web Documents and File Structure

While people have been writing HTML code by hand for years, the trend is increasingly toward using WYSIWYG (“What You See Is What You Get”) editors that write the HTML for you, such as Macromedia Dreamweaver, Adobe GoLive or Microsoft FrontPage. These programs make it easy to add JavaScript and advanced features of HTML, which XPress does not. If you plan to do extensive Web development and site management, you might want to use one of these programs in conjunction with QuarkXPress. For example, you would design the page in XPress, adding the text and graphics, export as HTML, and then modify and manage the page in Dreamweaver or GoLive.

So, what is the advantage of even using QuarkXPress? First, you can design your Web page using the familiar Text Box and Picture Box tools, and move the boxes around to your liking. You can even preview the page in a browser before exporting to make sure that your design displays properly. Second, you can easily transfer existing XPress content to a Web document.
