Saving Document As Web Page

Atlantis allows to convert any of your document to the HTML format (to save that document as a Web page). These HTML files can be included in your e-books, or uploaded as personal pages to your Web site.

In order to save any your document as a HTML file, choose the File | Save Special | Save As Web Page... menu command, or click the corresponding toolbar button: Button image.

As a first step, Atlantis asks you to name your HTML file:

Then another dialog pops up:

Use this dialog to adjust the options that will be used by Atlantis to create your Web page and accompanying files.

The Filename box of this dialog displays the filename under which the HTML page will be saved. Click the ... button next to this box if you want to specify another name for your HTML file:

The Title box contains the caption that will be used as the page title when this page is displayed in Web browsers:

Contents of the Keywords and Author boxes will be added to the header of the HTML file. These HTML keywords are used by search engines to properly index your HTML page.

When the Store pictures in a separate folder box is checked:

Atlantis will create a separate folder for the pictures contained by your document. The name of the folder with pictures is generated from the name of the HTML file by adding "_files". For example, if the filename of your HTML is "My page.htm", the folder with pictures will be "My Page_files".

When the Store pictures in a separate folder box is unchecked, all the pictures (if any) will be saved to the same folder as the HTML file itself.

Use the Background box if you would like to change the background color of the HTML page:

You can specify either a background color or a background picture from your hard disk. That picture will be tiled to fill all the background of your HTML page. Use the Browse... button below the Picture box to locate a picture. Click Clear if you do not want to use a background picture any more.

Note. If the current background color is not (None), and the Optimize onscreen contrast of text colors option is on (Tools | Options..., Colors), Atlantis will use adjusted text and highlight colors to make your text as easily readable on the specified background as it was readable in your original document.

For example, if the current background is blue, and your original document contains hyperlinks formatted with blue color, Atlantis will choose another color for your HTML hyperlinks to make your hyperlinks easily identifiable on the blue background (probably white or yellow color would be used).

The Preview in Browser... button displays your HTML in your default Web browser as it would look under the current settings.

Note. The HTML format does not support newspaper columns. When saved to HTML, these are converted to ordinary text. A few other formatting characteristics (text vertical location and custom tab stops) are emulated using other available HTML commands.

Note that Atlantis cannot be used to modify existing HTML files. Nevertheless we can suggest a way round this. Always keep original RTF or DOC documents when saving to HTML. You will be able to make any desired changes to these original files, then to save them again as HTML.
