How can I move content from .doc to .html?

with No Comments

When updating/moving/migrating content from an embedded Word document to an HTML file, here is a quick way to do it:

  1. Download the .doc file.
  2. Open Dreamweaver and create a new HTML document.
  3. Switch view to Design view (View > Design in menu bar).
  4. Go to File > Import > Word Document.

Note: A Word Document can only be imported into Dreamweaver when the view is set to Design.

This will help add in some (but not all) formatting features (such as lists and line breaks). You will need to edit and double check for correctness.

You will also need to remove (almost all) inline styling. Styling should be maintained in the corresponding CSS.
