Chapter 10. Working with Word and Excel Files

Chapter 10. Working with Word and Excel Files

Much of the content that you'll want to put online starts off life as Microsoft Word or Excel files. As both programs feature the ability to save to HTML, you might think saving Word and Excel files as HTML would be the easy way to go. Unfortunately, that's the wrong approach, partly because they both create poor-quality HTML and CSS files, and partly because you want to be able to use Dreamweaver's file management abilities. Thankfully, Dreamweaver simplifies the process of moving Microsoft-originated files onto the Web.

In this chapter, we'll address the various tools at your disposal in Dreamweaver and Microsoft Word and Excel that will help save you time and mental energy while processing these documents on their journey from your desktop to your Web site. But first, we'll look at the tools for creating and managing links to Word and Excel files within Dream weaver so that you can manage links to your Office files the same way you manage links between HTML files.
