6. Converting MS Word to HTML

Pasting text into WebLearn’s WYSIWYG HTML editor which has been copied from either Microsoft Word or Outlook is a hit and miss affair.

Pasting directly (via the ‘Paste’ button) is not recommended. Pasting using the ‘Paste from Word’ button does a better job but still leaves a large amount of unnecessary information interspersed within the text (use the ‘Source’ button to see this in action).

Pasting via the ‘Paste as plain text’ button is a good approach but nearly all the formatting is lost.

The best method I have seen is to use this website. Simply paste your text into the box and click the ‘Convert …’ button then click on the ‘Source’ button in the HTML editor and paste the resulting HTML into WebLearn.
