Chapter 26. Creating Professional Web Sites > Configuring Web-Related Options

Configuring Web-Related Options

Before you start creating Web pages in Word, you should review Word’s Web page–related options. Setting options might sound a little tedious compared to the prospect of creating Web pages, but controlling your working environment up front can save you headaches later. By paying attention to the Web options, you’ll also give yourself a chance to think about your Web pages before you get started, and you’ll be alerted to the types of details you might have to take into consideration. The options discussed in this part of the chapter can be found in the Web Options dialog box, which you can access by choosing Tools, Options, clicking the General tab, and then clicking Web Options. The first tab in the Web Options dialog box is the Browser tab, so we’ll start there.

Specifying Target Browser Options

When you create Web pages, you have to consider how people will be viewing your pages. One detail to consider is the range of browsers your audience will be using. If you’re publishing Web pages on an intranet for your company, chances are that most users will be using the same browser and similar computer configurations—in that case, design considerations are easy because you can design for the company standard. On the other hand, if you’re planning to post your pages on the Internet for people around the world, you’ll have to take a broader approach to design because you won’t know how users will be viewing your pages. (Will they use Macs, PCs, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Netscape Navigator, or something else?) In those cases, you need to define which browsers and which versions of those browsers you’re going to cater to as you design your Web pages.
