Converting Office Documents to Web Pages

What do you do if you have existing documents, worksheets, and presentations that you want to mount on the Web? Internet Explorer can work in conjunction with Office to display these files, but all your readers might not have that capability. To make sure anyone who surfs to your site can access your data, you need to convert your files into the Web’s lingua franca: HTML. Fortunately, the Office applications make this easy by including features that convert documents from their native format to HTML. This section explains the techniques that you use in each application.

Converting a Word Document to a Web Page

Word does an excellent job of converting existing documents into HTML format. Character formatting (that is, those formats that are compatible with HTML) is carried out flawlessly. Bullets, numbers, and tables remain intact; graphics are preserved; and hyperlinks make the journey without a hitch. You’ll need to watch out for your headings, but as long as you’ve used Word’s default heading styles (Heading 1, Heading 2, and so on), these will be transferred correctly to HTML heading tags.
