Office and the Web

Office 2000 extends Microsoft's embrace of Web technology. With a few minor exceptions (for example, Publisher), Office is truly Web-enabled, with HTML, the language of the Web, serving as a native file format for Office applications.

This means that the long-elusive "round trip" is a reality: You really can take a Word document, Excel workbook, or PowerPoint presentation, save it to the Web, then open it in a browser, and end up with the same document you saved. That's important because the little details that always seemed to go wrong in earlier versions of Office—dating all the way back to Word's original Internet Assistant—appear to have been ironed out. You can create and modify Web pages with confidence, knowing that what you see in an application is what you'll get when surfing. Web support no longer seems tacked on to the Office applications; instead, it's a central feature.
