How do I maintain formatting?


Virgil Hastings

I'm using Word 2K and when I save as a .txt file all formatting is lost. I
use a Text to HTML converter prior to uploading to a website. How do I go
about preserving the formatting so that the web doc looks like the one I
created in Word?

Best regards,

Txt is plain text and that does not support formatting.
Html does support formatting, but its requirements are entirely different
from those of a Word document and so there is little correlation between the
two. You can view what the Word document will look like in html by using the
Web view.

That is notmal behaviour for TXT files, no formatting retained.
Use RTF format to keep format, beware though the file size can increase
depending on what you have in the document.

Hope this helps
