          You should start by telling us what you mean by EDMs...

           

          InDesign is a page layout program, for designing documents, and may not be sutable for what you want to do (googling EDMs indicates you may want to design an electronic data management system).

            Thanks for your response.

             

            EDMs is an Electronic direct mailing system normally used for advertising by email.

             

            My confiusion is when a client ask for an EDMs basicly they want the design only to take to developer and transfer it to HTML codes but I don't now the basic standard to open the document in InDesign for EDMs.

              This is outside my workflow, but I suspect that the answer is not going to be one you like. Things have begun to change with the epub and DPS feature sets, but as far as I know there still is no good way to get from ID to HTML and preserve to the formatting of the page.

               

              You should here from some others with more experience in this area shortly.

                Well, you can but it will cost you a few bucks.
