WORD w/o html

Ladde Mayer My WORD has no capability to save to html. How can I use my WORD files to create an ebook?

EBookCompiler Are you sure you are using Word (some people confused "Word Pad" with "Word" - they are NOT the same)

Microsoft Word is the word processor that you get with Microsoft Office (includes a spell checker and a bunch of other stuff)

Word Pad is the word processor that comes free with recent Windows versions (doesn't include a spell checker for example and probably lives in Accessories on the Start menu)

If you have Microsoft Word, look for Save As Web Page (and see Getting Started section of our Help)

If you have Word Pad, get an HTML editor, even a free one like Arachnophilia (which you can download from many shareware sites) would do.

Neenah13 I'm not crazy about using Word for HTML. Too much inflated code, you can't even find your own text if there's something you want to change by hand. WordPerfect is slightly better in this way. I guess if you're not into doing your own coding, it's okay.

I don't, personally, like one three mile long scrolling page of HTML. I break it up into smaller pages linked together and use page transitions. Gotten a few praises for my designs. Also, I like to use graphics, background and table colors, etc. I've never explored that in Word, I have in WordPerfect, but haven't used it since discovering Arach 4 way back when. 1990something, I'd say.

I have both Arachnophilia ver. 4 and 5. Version 5 is styled like most of them are, but 4 is simpler and I like it better. Still am using it along with the CoffeeCup HTML Editor. A new version of that is supposed to be out soon.

There are a lot of free html editors, and I've tried many of them, bought a few too, but I keep coming back to Arach 4. Why? Because it is NOT styled like the others and I can much more easily view what I'm doing. (these old eyes ain't what they used to be!) It lets me customize new toolbars without my having to search all over the place for the command that allows it. Which means I can make buttons for the features I need geared to the way I code. I'm not sure if he offers ver. 4 on site anymore, so if you want a copy, I can send it to you.
