I've tried this software (it installs as a printer driver) and it is
basically garbage. You'd be better off hand-coding your HTML.

You may want to look at going to Adobe Acrobat PDF files as an
interim solution until something better comes along, as I'm sure it
will. The Acrobat reader is free and it can be installed as a browser
plug-in for Netscape and probably Internet Explorer.

Also have you checked out the Adobe PageMill and SiteMill products?
They may provide some PageMaker compatibility, given that they are
produced by Adobe.
