I've had success with transforming Macintosh PageMaker 5.0 to HTML. Here's
1. Select the whole PageMaker document.
2. Export it as Rich Text Format.
3. Run the file through rtftohtml (available on WWW)
This gave me the text in html format with each graphic separated out (in
my case, as a pict file). I converted each pict file to a gif file and
put it all together. Ironically, the graphics looked better on the
screen than they had in the printed version.
Anyone have a better way?
