Wiki 2 html conversion on local machine and WYSIWYG editing of wiki doc

Posted on 2006-03-24
Last Modified: 2013-12-16
I have to make plenty of instructional documents in HTML. There are a lot of screenshots in them. I tried to use MS Word 2003 for it but after hours spent on fixing the images (which get altered, formats are changed and all the grief) and formatting issues I switched to HAND-editing HTML in SciTE.

Folks how I hate Word now... brrr.

I edited some Wiki docs using pure Wiki syntax and find it just perfect for my puprose.
All I need is:
simple indenting,
bold,size, font change (rarely), tables - |  |  |  syntax is very cool, color, links, and of course images.

I imagine I will make a document named  and I will associate a wiki2html converter/scirpt/whatever that makes HTML from it.

1. Is there such a converter that supports what I need (especially tables and font changes)?
2. Is there a WYSIWYG editor for wiki docs - I know there are several that runs on www servers but I need it locally on my WinXP and save my docs on my hard drive?

Thanks in advance Experts.

    I know what you mean abourt Word craziness with images/formats/etc... :)

    I may be misunderstanding your question ... but when you're editing your document, and then you're previewing it, doesn't it get displayed in Internet Explorer? In that case, you could just do File > Save as and save the webpage (with any images).

    I do save my document in HTML and preview in IE.
    But it just looks different.
    1. Images are lower quality than pasted to Word, sometimes however they are fine, sometimes owfully bad, resize, squeezed, stretched....
    2. Yesterdey I had an issue of OVERLAPPING 2 parts of document over each other! I had to delete one <span> element to fix it...

    No, Word is no more - I need something simple that I control.
    I need Wiki, the trick is I need it localy.
