Response to queries from Shannon Kelly & Kent Newton about converting
documents to HTML format.
____________
I recently worked on a project requiring conversion of large MS Word
documents to HTML format. We used HTML Transit to complete the
conversion. Overall, HTML Transit does an effective job. In addition,
it recognizes MS Word cross-references and converts them to hypertext
links.

You can obtain an evaluation copy of this software for free.

If you have any questions or would like some tips about using the
software, please feel free to contact me.

I've never used it, but I've read about a product called HTML Transit
which takes source files from a variety of formats, runs them through an
HTML template you create, and converts those divergent source files into
a cohesive HTML document. Supposedly, the HTML template can be set up to
convert a variety of styles or tags into the same HTML code. It
allegedly works with native formats, not just RTF.

HTML Transit is released by InfoAccess (formerly OWL International). For
more information, you can contact InfoAccess at:

info -at- infoaccess -dot- com

Of you can visit their web site at:

http://www.infoaccess.com

Again, I've never used it, I'm not endorsing it, and I have no connection
whatsoever with InfoAccess. I just thought the product may meet your
needs. (If you try it, let me know what you think of it: I may need to
do the same thing to our documents.)
