Word Documents, Consistent Format, Style Sheets

Posted on 1999-08-07

Last Modified: 2013-12-25
On my intranet I want my word documents to have the same look and feel. The documents are created by many different users therefore I feel style sheets would be great to keeping the format of the doc consistent. But here's my problem:

If I have all users follow a formatting convention and use style sheets, how can I get the style sheets to automatically take affect on converted word documents without manually placing the style sheet links in the converted word documents.

I hope this makes sense.

A good bet is to build a template.  Make the basic HTML page with everything on it except the content between <body> and </body> and possibly any <meta> tags.  Then require that all users open the template, add their <body> content and save as the page file name desired.  You can have a style sheet on the template or use <link rel="stylesheet" href="stylesheet.css"> in the <head>.  This will allow you to change the stylesheet and it will automatically take effect on all linked pages.
