Hi all. I currently write a weekly newsletter sent to clients via email and posted in pdf format on the company website. We are toying with the idea of sending an HTML version via email for clients that can read HTML email; i.e. Outlook. The source for this newsletter is Word but I am hesitant on using the Word's HTML output feature for the reasons mentioned by both Bryan and Sandy. Does anyone else create HTML emails and if so, do you use an HTML editor such as Dreamweaver to create it? Thanks in advance!

Can anybody tell me why Word 2000 includes UML tags in its "HTML" output?

<<<The Word 97 output was messy enough, but it seems now that they are getting
further away from real HTML in some sort of defiance to the standards.>>>
