Greetings To all
===========

I am not an expert.

I have attempted to take a Word document into FrontPage and I finish up with huge amounts of space that were not in the original document.

http://home.vicnet.net.au/~priorfhs/sample.htm

They appear to be cause by this code:

&nbsp;<o:p>
        </o:p>

because when I edit that out the page is presentable:

What are the little yellow squares with a question mark?

How do I avoid collecting the unwanted critters?

What is the object called that encloses the document? It is not a table, not a frame and I seem to be unable to get a left margin on the page.

Thanks,

robinski

My advice is don't use FrontPage2000.

I've experienced the same problem - the Word2K/FrontPage2K combination produces huge files full of XML in attempt to recreate the formatting originally present in the Word File - but 90% it is unecessary.

If you want to continue using WYSIWYG to turn your Word files into HTML but make them a reasonable size - get a copy of Dreamweaver 3. It has an excellent utility called CLEAN WORD FILES - and boy does it clean 'em.

I had a 30k word file, which produced a staggering 270k HTML file - processed it through Dreamweaver and it reduced it ten fold down to 27K. If you do a lot of Word to HTML conversions - this utility is worth the asking price for DW alone - and of course DW can do so much more.
