If the thought of creating pages with nothing more than Notepad or SimpleText scares you, don't worry - there are lots of tools to help you, including add-ons like the Internet Assistant for Word for Windows - the walkthough shows you how to create a page with it.
To start creating your document with Word, select File..New and then Html from the list of document types. If you don't have Internet Assistant for Word, then you can grab it from ftp.microsoft.com. Remember that you'll need Word 6.0a or later
To give your document a title, select HTML Document Info from the File menu and type it in. Most browsers will display the title, though it's not seen in Word for Windows.
When you save the document, make sure you save it in HTML format - Word won't remember for you
This is the basic text of the document. You can type it in or just copy it from another document. If you want to add headings, just highlight the text and then select the heading you want from the drop-down style menu.
To insert a link, click on the 'chain' button. If you want a link to a URL, all you have to do is fill in the details in the space provided. A list of other links you've used appears at the bottom of the window so that you can select them easily.
To insert a picture, click on the icon in the button bar. You can specify the 'alt' text in this dialogue box, for people who aren't looking at the pictures.
If you want to insert a named anchor, click on the bookmark button and then type the name into the space and click the 'Add' button.
When you want to jump to a bookmark, click to insert a link in the usual way and then select Bookmarks - you can pick the one you want from a list of all the ones in the current document.
This is the finished result (with images turned off) using Word for Windows as the viewer. If you've made a mistake, you can click on a button to edit the page straight away.
This is the HTML that was generated automatically by Word. It's not complicated, but you can save a lot of time by using an HTML editor like Word or HoTMetaL.
