The previous page explained how to create a web page using the Web Page Wizard. This page describes creating a web page from scratch and adding elements to a page from the wizard. When working on a web format document, view the page in web layout by selecting View|Web Layout from the menu bar. Enter text and insert graphics just as you would in a normal Word document.
A hyperlink is a connection between two web pages on the Internet. Hyperlinks can be produced from text or graphics and both methods will be discussed here. Follow these steps to create links to other web sites and pages within your site:
Pages on the web must be saved in a format called HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) that is readable by web browsers. Word will convert your document to HTML using the Save as Web Page feature.
Word features several layout templates that you can add your own content to. Create a web page from a template by following these steps:
The Visual Theme feature from the Web Page Wizard can be accessed for any web page. To add a theme to a blank page or existing page, select Format|Theme... from the menu bar. Choose a theme from the list and click OK. The page content will remain blank unless a background image is part of the theme that was selected. The style listings, default font, and bullet images have been changed to reflect the new theme. To change the theme of the page, simply select Format|Theme... from the menu bar again and choose a different theme.
The page may look slightly different when converted to HTML and viewed on the web. Before publishing your web page, be sure to use Word's web preview feature. Select File|Web Page Preview to open the page in a web browser.
