Appleworks 6 - how to edit and save html
Posted on 2004-11-22
hmmm - I guess this is tougher then I thought, given the lack of response. I'm looking at trying out BBEdit Lite as a start. Still would at least like to understand what sort of processing Appleworks did to the file (and why), and whether I can use this as the basis of a web page. Please - anythoughts??
This should be fairly simple for one of you! Just got a new G5 - my 12 year old is now joined at the hip to it. He is trying to teach himself HTML. I just don't have the time right now to figure out what is going on - so thought I would try you guys. Using the basic text editor (equivablent of Notepad), he made what seems to be a decent HTML file. He then cut this, and copied it into Appleworks. The problem: Appleworks seems to do some pre-processing on the file cuz it realizes its html (EXAMPLE: changed all occurences of '<' to '<', and '>' to '>') , and we can't figure out how to get it saved as HTML, and then picked up by Safari or Firefox to see what his html looks like. Could be we need a tutorial or something - but it shouldn't be too hard??
So - any hints, or ideas on where to find a tutorial to explain how to do this (to a keen 12 year old).
