Part 3. Completing Three Simple CD Projects > Starting a Business Card CD

Starting a Business Card CD

Create a new folder (preferably in the root folder of a drive [C:]) to hold your business-card files.

Start with a main Word document, which includes some images and hyperlinks. Select a phrase you'd like to add a link to, and click the Hyperlink button.

Select a Word document to make it link to.

Click OK to continue—don't forget to save your work!

INTRODUCTION

You might have seen the business-card shaped CDs available in stores; they hold about 180MB of data. You can burn your folders to one of those, and if you simulate a Web site, with a home page and subpages, you can create a simple interactive business-card presentation.


HINT

These will include the main document, linked documents, images, and maybe even video.


To put images into the document, you can use tables to create a layout and hold the pictures. Click Insert Table to create a table.

Click Insert on the main menu, then click Pictures, From File.

Browse to the image(s) you want to insert. Select an image and click Insert.

Now save your new Web page by clicking File, Save As.

TIP

You could keep everything in Word; hyperlinks generally will work. But saving as a Web page will let anyone with a Web browser look at your presentation.


Choose the folder you selected for your Web project.

Under Save as Type, select Web Page.

Click Save to continue.

TIP

FrontPage is a program that will convert all your Word documents with their links to HTML.


HINT

Unfortunately, the only thing Word will automatically convert to linked files is the main document (HTM) and the images that we put into it.
