Convert complex documents into Web pages seamlessly
What is Web Publisher?
Web Publisher is an award-winning tool that automatically turns
complex documents such as manuals into a structured, linked set
of Web pages. It enhances these pages to conform with your design.
Versions are available for Windows 95, Windows NT,
Windows 3.1 and Windows for Workgroups. All are Y2K-compliant.
What can it convert?
Web Publisher converts Word, WordPerfect,
FrameMaker, RTF and other files into HTML -- converting
not only text, but tables, images, fonts, colors, and other formatting.
Can it Insert Links and Enhance Pages?
Web Publisher goes way beyond conversion. It can enhance each HTML
file with a given header, footer, and background. It can insert any
specified HTML Tags. It can create a Table of Contents with links
to each topic in a file, and insert a link to any home page.
Can it batch-process many files?
Just click on a button and Web Publisher can convert and enhance all
the files in a directory -- producing web pages that have the look and
feel you specified.
How does it handle really BIG documents?
Web Publisher Professional has the power to tame a 300-page
HR manual, or 2,000 pages of operating procedures. It breaks large
documents into a series of small HTML files, each on a separate topic.
Then it links these small HTML files to a hierarchical Table of Contents.
The result is a well-structured web site. End users can click on an item
in the Table of Contents and go directly to the information they
want -- without ever downloading a large file. When the source documents
change, no editing is required to update the web site.
Can it run from a Command Line?
The Command-Line Version of Web Publisher Professional operates
without human intervention. You can have a batch file run it each day,
causing it to check designated directories on your LAN. When it finds
any new or changed documents, it converts them to HTML, splits them
into small files, links the new HTML files to a hierarchical Table of
Contents, and enhances the new Web pages according to your template.
Your Web site will always reflect the current contents of the source
What version is right for me?
If you just need to convert documents to HTML and enhance HTML files
according to a template, get the Standard Edition.
If you have large documents such as manuals, or a set of related
documents that should be linked to hierarchical Table of Contents,
you’ll want Web Publisher Professional.
To set up a totally-automated, hands-off system that keeps your
Web site up-to-date even when the source documents change, get the
Command Line Version of Web Publisher Professional.
Ideal for managing content from multiple contributors.
