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: .
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.
If your document contains pictures, the Save As Web Page dialog contains a group of additional options:
The Images box lists all the pictures available in your document. You could specify filenames as well as the desired graphic formats for your pictures.
Use the Image filename box to specify another filename for the selected picture.
When the Start image numbering from 1 box is checked, the first image always has the name "Img0001.???". Otherwise Atlantis might use continuous image numeration (ie the first image might include the number of the last image created by the previous call of the "Save As Web Page" command plus 1).
Note that the Start image numbering from 1 box is always checked and grayed out (it cannot be unchecked) when the Store pictures in a separate folder box is also checked. This is because page numbering always starts from 1 when the pictures are placed in a separate folder.
The Image format box allows to specify the desired graphic format for the selected picture.
Use the Default image format box to quickly change the graphic format of all the document pictures. If you select the Use optimal format option from this box, Atlantis will automatically choose the optimal image format for each picture individually.
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.
