Building the Web Page

Once you define the properties for your Web page, you are ready to start drawing text and picture boxes and importing your content. The Web document looks similar to a print document within XPress, though the ruler is set to pixels and you'll see the Web Tools palette under the regular Tool palette. These tools are for creating forms and drawing image maps, which are covered later in this chapter.

You can use almost every feature in XPress to build your Web page, though some features are grayed out because HTML doesn't support them. For instance, you cannot rotate a text box because there's no such thing as rotated text in HTML. However, if you choose to convert the text box to a graphic (see “Converting Text to a Graphic,” below) then suddenly you can rotate it. Similarly, you can put text on a Bézier line, but XPress will automatically convert the object to a graphic upon export.
