Re: HTML question (off topic)

I would have to agree with John Colvin.... Word files make for an AWFUL HTML
conversion. Frontpage is excellent though. The problem is like he said, it's
a matter of compatability especially with regards to Cascading Style Sheets
(the font and layout info Word puts in automatically). HTML generated from MS
Office programs is very messy and is usually about 10x as complicated as it
has to be. Stick with a text-based editor (Even Notepad will work well) or a
dedicated webpage program like Frontpage.

I reccommend if you are learning HTML to get a copy of "Using HTML 4.0
Special Edition" by Molly Holzschlag. This is an EXCELLENT resource and she
explains everything you wanted to know about HTML in a concise, easy to
follow manner, with lots and lots of examples.

Good luck!
