1 Definition

The HyperText Markup Language (HTML) is a simple markup language used to createhypertext documents that are portable from one platform to another. It is the publishing language of the World Wide Web (WWW). HTML documents are SGML documents with generic semantics that are appropriate for representing information from a wide range of applications. XHTML documents are XML documents and you should start coding in XHTML (this page needs some tutorials on XHTML, but since there are so many indexes, you'll have to wait maybe forever).

6.3 Filter software

  • Word to HTML. "Save as HTML" in Word leads to "difficult" HTML and it may be useful to get some filter software. However, this section needs updating ....
    • Logictran RTF Converter (Html and XML). Probably the best tool, goes back to the well known rtf2html 2.7.5 by Chris Hector and rtftoweb 1.6 by Christian Bolik of which we seem to have a copy (inexpensive payware)
    • Xtreme Rtrf2Html (FreeWare, dead ???)
