Windows 95: web tools


#1

Dave: Do you mean (sorry, I’m not up on the lingo) that if you
write script in the Windows Word program, then use the IA
(whatever that is) it will translate English into html language?
Or is there something one needs to download at the Microsoft Web
site you gave? Please explain a bit further for us elementary
webschoolers. Many thanks.

No problem! Well, you may be reading more into this than is there. In
Word, for example, you can create some text, format the font, insert a
graphic element (an image), etc. Create a conventional document. Then,
using the Internet Assistant, create an output file in HTML, that
appears like the original when viewed though a Web browser.

One of the things that’s been tough (at least for me) to do manually in
HTML is a table. The Excel Internet Assistant allows you to publish a
selected range of cells into a table, either as a new HTML document, or
inserted in a new document.

There are Internet Assistants for Access, Word, Excel, PowerPoint,
Schedule+, and Publisher 97 Trial. I’ve only used the Excel IA, but I
imagine each product’s IA does things that are relevant to that
particular product.

The URL to the download page is below:

http://www.microsoft.com/msdownload/

There are a lot of other things that can be downloaded, for FREE, from
that point.

I hope this helps… but just downloading them and playing with them
will show you a lot more!

Hi! Quick correction here! Yesterday I wrote:

inserted in a new document.

Shoulda been:

The Excel Internet Assistant allows you to publish a
selected range of cells into a table, either as a new HTML document, or
inserted in an existing document.

Sorry 'bout that,

Dave

Will Word handle table traslation to HTML… Tables are quite simple in Word???

Hi Jim,

I just talked to the guys in Word support. there are two versions of
Internet Assistant (IA) for Word. Version1, which work on Word 6 (Mac
and Windows, I believe) and up, doesn’t support tables. Version2, only
for Word for Windows 95 (Word 7), does support tables. I think the
first version my have been written before HTML tables were well
understood by browser technology. Both versions are available on the
Microsoft Web site.
