    MS Word html to Dreamweaver MX

    drodax Level 1
      I was given this web course that i need to update that was made in Word Html. Im using DW mX to updated it. i used the clean up html and cleanup word html option, but still doesnt get rid of all of it, unless i go through the code manually and get rid of it. Is there a fater and best way to do this?

          Read it in a browser, copy text on screen (if it's not dynamic) to your DW.
          Style with CSS.

          To me, it's vastly easier to recreate the page than it is to clean it up.

          HTH,

            Create a new page in DW. In Word, select the content and paste it into the
            new page in DW. It's pretty clean like that.

                No need. Just copy from Word and paste into DW.
