It sounds like you are trying to program HTML/JSP in word. This is a bad idea for many reasons. You can either progam in a plain text editor like notepad(comes with windows) or TextPad (http://www.textpad.com/) (which are free/shareware) or you cuold buy a proper HTML editor such as Macromedia's Dreamweaver (http://www.macromedia.com/software/dreamweaver/?promoid=home_prod_dw_082403).

I have no idea about what printing from Word has to do with JSP, but you can get around the unrecognised word underlining in WOrd by adding the word to a custom dictionary so that wor does recognise it (right-click/Add to Dictionary).


Your last question about meta tags.
The META tag is used to convey meta-information about the document, but can also be used to specify headers for the document. You can use either HTTP-EQUIV or NAME to name the meta-information, but CONTENT must be used in both cases. By using HTTP-EQUIV, a server should use the name indicated as a header, with the specified CONTENT as its value.

1)META HTTP-EQUIV="Content-Type" CONTENT="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
This header tells the browser what the content is in this download. In this case it is "text/html". This is the one used for html, but it could equally be "text/csv" for a csv file or "application/vnd.ms-excel" for an excel document

2)<META NAME="Generator" CONTENT="Microsoft Word 97">
This indicates the program used to generate this document. It is often the name of the HTML editor used.

3)META NAME="Template" CONTENT="D:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office\html.dot">
An extra header added by word when making HTML files from a word document. Not requred by the browser.

use javascript

I'll need more info on anything else. You need to ask some specific questions as at the moment you are just asking vague ones.

If you really want MS word format as output, one way you can do is to convert your hmtl/text format file to word using OpenOffice filter (you need to install openoffice).

Have you tried to save your MSWORD Doc as web page format. And try to create another file like this:

<HTML>

<BODY>
<%@include file="file_msword_name.mht"%>
</BODY>
</HTML>

And save something.jsp. See whether it works.

Or Simply just put the msword, which has been save as .mht, file to the web directory.

I hope it helps.
