Design Corner: Using Word As a Web Authoring Tool

Certainly, Word 2002 does not replace FrontPage as a Web page editor, but there's no question that the two operate in conjunction with each other much more closely and usefully than ever before. Probably the best possible authoring environment for sophisticated and detailed Web sites would consist of FrontPage 2002, Word 2002 (and other Office XP applications for specialized purposes), and a higher-end, more graphically and multimedia-oriented package such as Macromedia's Dreamweaver. The combination would be expensive—prohibitively so if you're not developing sites professionally—but it would be a difficult combination to beat.

When using Word as a Web authoring tool, remember not to use features that do not translate well onto the Web. Reference features, such as footnotes and captions, are included here, as are Word's print-oriented and higher-end formatting tools. For the most part, however, the only way to discover which ones work and which don't is to try them. Saving a Word document in HTML format will instantly show you how some of them fare. Take a look, too, at the Web Page Preview, available through the File menu, to get a sense of what works and what doesn't.
