I've had some luck doing this to produce HTML: files:

- writing documentation in Word
- saving it in .RTF
- opening it in Microsoft's FrontPage
- saving that file with an .HTM extension.

Tables come over beautifully, and even the default Word headings Heading 1. 2
and 3 come over as FrontPage's default HTML headings 1, 2 and 3.

The .HTM files show up fine in Netscape, too.

My first question--this seems too easy. Anything I should watch out for? Am I
going to run into Trouble?

My second question--in my documentation that I'm producing in HTML, any
guidelines on page width, background color, font size, and ways to do warnings
and hints?
