    Hi KymYvonne,

    Not easily.

    Publisher creates very bad HTML, so you are usually better off starting over from the ground up.  However:

    1) Export the Publisher file to HTML
    2) Open the HTML file in Dreamweaver
    3) Run Command | Cleanup Word HTML (check all options)
    4) Run Command | Cleanup HTML (check all options)

    That will do as good of an automatic job as possible.  The rest will involve hand-editing the code.
