Design Corner: Publishing Office Documents to the Web

Many of the applications discussed here do the best possible job that a machine could do for an automated translation of document data to the Internet. In many cases, the transition is smooth, but sometimes someone needs to come in and clean things up. Right now there is no way to program a computer so that the formatting looks the same between programs in a way that works right every time. There are just too many places in which a document that looks good in one format does not translate well to the Web. There will always be the need for the designer in the final process.

If your site makes use of occasional documents translated from Office programs, it might be wise to take a look at each of these documents individually to make sure that the desired result was achieved. If the site makes frequent use of translated documentation, it might be worth your time to examine the process by which the document is translated to ensure that things are done the way you want them to be done every time.
