e-book on line

By ddavidc ·
I have a technical book written in a typical word processor, each chapter is a file. The book includes Lotus 123 files for illustrations also.
I would like to make selected material from this book available through my web site for on-line reading.
What is the best way to transform my files (both word processor files and spreadsheet graphics) so as to make them readily available over my web site for on line consultation?

Don't know about Lotus or what word processor you're using, but with newer versions of MS Word and Excel you can save the document or spreadsheet as HTML. Load that HTML into an editor for tweaking and you're done.

This answer solves a different kind of problem: When you are going to write a book, so that you choose the sw which would allow you to do the trick. In my case, though, I already have the thing written and I just simply do not want to re-type thewhole thing again! Thanks.

I have another suggestion. If you want the users to carry your file on Palm or PalmPC, look into the software who can do conversion into handheld format. Alternatively, you can turn them to HTML format and allow handheld PC to download from Avantgo.

Hope this information is helpful.

You can use a HTML editor, like CoffeeCup, then open the file using your word processor/ spreadsheet program(s); copy and paste the information from there into the HTML editor then you're all set. When you save the web page/ change then you can test it before you post to see how it will look and work. Make sure any graphics are in .GIF or .JPG formats because these are the only two formats that you can use. If cannnot get CoffeeCup then you can try WWW.NONAGS.COM . They have a large amount of freeware editors that are ready for download.

Happy Computing !!
