    Hi,

    I'm wondering if you can possibley offer me some assistance?

    I created a website using Microsoft Word 2002 and then saved it as a (htm., html document) However, as you may be aware Microsoft add extra non-essential html which makes your document much larger, i.e. increasing loading time.

    I'm wondering if anyone knows a way to get rid of the word html that is not required? Some of my html documents are 33K which is bad.

    I heard there is a html filter for Word 2000 but it does not work for 2002.

    All help would be appreciated.

    If you have further questions, please ask - I will reply.

    Thanks

    Jamie Abbott

    Thanks

    33KB or 33K, both are ok. Everyone (should) know what you mean.

    Here is a link to what I think you are looking for. But unfortunately I think you will still need to do a bit of hand editing to remove ALL the Word HTML fluff.

    Oh btw (by the way), I found that link by going to google.com and typing in "word 2000 html filter". I know you said Word 2002 but it should still work a little.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the reply.

    I downloaded the software but it does not install as I dont have Word 2000 installed on my system just Word 2002.

    For future reference, you might want to try a capable WYSIWYG HTML editor (which, as you can tell, Word certainly is not). Dreamweaver and FrontPage tend to be the industry standards, with Dreamweaver usually being the favored one because it makes less IE-favoring code and is far more powerful.

    A trial version of DW is available; I don't know about FP but my copy of Office XP came with it.

    Or you could really dig in and do it all by hand using a free editor like HTML-Kit (my editor of choice) found at http://www.chami.com.

    Hi,

    Thamks for the replys.

    I use Word as a WYSIWYG. I'm not really that skilled at the art of html but I like the simple layout of Word.

    Can is ask another quick q? When entering keywords for the search engine metatags... should i seperate it with commas?

    e.g. graphic, web design, html, word, blah, blah, etc?

    or graphic; design; blah; blah?

    lol

    Thanks
