how to make word and excel dos into html
August 8, 2010 12:51am CST
Hello. I have made my website on Weebly which has both click and drag options and html code option. So far I have used only click and drag which takes time and I have to have internet connection. However, many times I am at places where there is no internet connection. So I wanted to write my website offline using word for text and excel for tables. Then I wanted to convert them into html, copy the code and paste them on my website when I am home. However, when I use the option to save as html in word, I lose some of the formatting. Can anyone help me please.

I just found this, so came back to mention it. Might be worth a try: YouConvertIt.com Source: http://www.yousaytoo.com/best-free-file-converters-convert-any-filetype-free/353955 It says youconvertit.com converts word to .html - and it's free. Worth a try.

Word formatting has some very specific coding, which makes it difficult to translate into other formats. The best thing you can do is forget your formatting in Word and simply write down your words etc so you don't forget them. Or, learn html and hand write your html in notepad. HTML doesn't have to be hard. All you'd need to understand are a handful of simple commands. Look into it. Check out how a page is formatted using just: html - one of these at the start and end of the whole document head - one of these at the start and end of the heading area body - one of these at the start and end of the body section p - new paragraph br - new line, but not a paragraph ol - start of a numbered list (ol = ordered list) ul - start of an unnumbered list (ul = unordered list) li - a bullet point hr - a horizontal line table - one at the start and end of a table tr - new row in a table td - new column (cell) in a table I've left out the pointy brackets above as I wasn't sure how they'd come out in mylot if I typed them in :) The above should be enough to do 98% of what you need to in notepad.

Well, sorry to say this but you cant do this thing that first you create your site in Word and excel and then convert it to HTML. Even in HTML you have to code that again.So its useless to first create a demo site in Word and then in HTML. So better code that in HTML directly at your computer and then try to run it in your web browser to check how it would look online. Also, Notepad++ is just like Notepad but have some added functionality. Though it will not make HTML page automatically, but will helo you a bit in creating HTML page. Notepad++ makes it easy to read and write the code as it will automatically add tabs and spaces between the code and will help to maintain and modify the code easily. And you can make HTML page on your computer offline even in simple Notepad. Just save your file in Notepad/Notepad++ with a .HTML extension rather than saving it with .txt and open it with any web browser you are using.

I dont know how to answer your question because you didn't specify which formatting has been lost after saving it. Moreover,You didn't specify the process how you saved the file. What I could suggest is for you use proper web development tool like Dreamweaver or Microsoft Frontpage when developing application offline to make sure that you dont lose some formatting as well as for you apply the design that you want.
