Images and Best Software ??

Debbie Hi all,
Here are a couple newbie questions for you.

I did a dummy test using Word 2000 just to get the feel of things. (yes, I followed the instructions in Chapter 2) When viewing the compiled book, my images did not show up. I received an error about not having some VML thing (sorry, didn't write down exact error). Anyway, I had to download it. After that the images showed up.  I am just wondering. Was this unique error my computer  only or will all viewers have to do this?

And second, I have Front Page 2000, Power Point 2000 and Word 2000 on my computer.  In your opinions, which program should I be using. ie: Best for quality output (format), fastest downloading, etc. I will be composing a rather large ebook. Most pages will have a single clip art image.

Thank you all very much for your time. This looks like a great board. Very helpful.  :-}

EBookCompiler I  think the VML problem is because you missed one of the settings when you did save as html/web-page in word.  There are rather a lot of settings there...   I am not certain, so it could also be an oddity on your PC

For creating the ebook?  I would guess it's going to be a close run thing between FrontPage and Word (assuming you overcome the struggles in PowerPoint about making the images appear in the right folder - there are various threads scattered around about this - it can be done - I'm not a frontpage expert, but it can also be an issue...read the threads)

I think - if you are looking for efficiency then hand-coded (or hand cleaned up) HTML is going to be best. Take a look at this thread:
