Word2000 to FP2000 format

I have created a webpage using FP2000. Every time i use a Word2000 doc, and have FP2000 place it on the webpage. The format changes. which requires a lot of work to correct. My question is? How do i use a Word2000 doc in FP2000 without the format changing?

The easiest way of course is to use FP itself and not using Word :) However, did you do it with the "Save as Web Page" on Word and then open it with FrontPage?

Can you give me some clarifications on what you've said? From which program did you print out the webpage from (FP or your browser?) and how does the printout looks like?

Sorry about that. When i print, it is from the browser, netscape 4.61, and the printout looks like a line, or two has been added for every blank line on the doc. Which causes 17 pages to be printed instead of 7. I hope this helps?

I see.
And how does the page look like? Does it look as what you'd expect?
If that's the case, look up the html tags in FrontPage. There might be blank lines like, huge gaps betweeen your sentences and the closing tags. This may occur during the conversion, for some weird reasons. If there are, eliminate the blanks (you can do this on the text editor) and try again. So far that's what I've concluded.

A good way to see whether this happens to you, aside from checking the html tags, is to check whether you have horizontal scroll bar below your screen. If there is a scroll bar leading away from your page (to the right where there are blanks) it is a good indication that there are indeed blank lines between the sentences. Eliminate that.

Good luck.

Try using tables in your word doc, ensuring that the table ends at the end of the page. Using this method you can copy the table into FP etc and keep the same formatting as was in word. Once in FP you can make the table borders size 0 so that they don't show.
