Chapter 6. Making the Most of FlashPaper

Chapter 6. Making the Most of FlashPaper

In Lesson 5, you learned several methods for working with external documents. These methods basically boil down to two strategies: convert the content to HTML, or link to the file. The first approach is good for text-based documents with images and (to some degree) for spreadsheets; the linking technique is completely dependent on the programs available on the client machine. If the page visitor has a program capable of reading the file type, the file is downloaded, and the proper program is launched. If an installed program has made a plug-in or ActiveX control available for the browser, the plug-in is launched—typically taking over the browser page—and the file is displayed. Although both techniques for handling external documents have their uses, they also leave a lot to be desired.

FlashPaper makes it easy for Dreamweaver designers and Contribute users to embed any kind of printable document directly in a Web page.
