Already tried the trial of EX3
Gotcha on the sub folders. nice and clean
Can i use sharePoint to amend my PUB File?
I want to master PUB then move on to something better but not writing code
I'll use Primo to convert the JPEG AND GIF files to PDF as GIF doesn't open
when i click the link and has to be saved before opening
Can primo covert GIF to PDF?
ew3.0 trial is available here:.
SharePoint designer 2007 is available for free here:
Chinese content? No idea other than perhaps use paste special for more
options. Perhaps post your question in the Word group.
You can add as many subfolders to public_html as you want. I have an
'images' folder plus many others as I build my site with multiple Publisher
files and upload to separate subfolders and link all together. Subfolders or
subdirectories are a great way to organize your site and you don't end up
with a lot of misc. files loose in your root directory.
A web page saved as an image is likely to be a big file, slow to download.
You might consider saving as a MHT and loading that to the subfolder...but
then I don't know what you are trying to do.
In general because the code generated by Publisher is so different, you
won't be happy with the results of trying to 'transfer' or import your web
files into EW. It has been reported that importing into Sharepoint can work,
but I haven't done it. I think that given how small your site is, it would
be faster to just rebuild your site from scratch rather than deal with the
differences in the code.
Expression Web and Sharepoint replaced FrontPage. EW is a full out web
editor that is intended to generate 'standards compliant' code. You should
plan on learning basic html coding and php coding and in general a much
larger learning curve, but in the long term you will have fewer limitations.
Publisher is a DTP that has some html generating capability. It might be a
good choice for someone who already owns the program and knows how to use it
to build print publications. They can use the same skill set to build
relatively simple, basic, static sites, and with some tweaking with format
and layout can obtain good cross browser capability though no version of
Publisher produces 'standards compliant' code. However, it is limited and if
you want open ended potential then choose Web Expression or even SharePoint
would probably be a better choice.
I can't tell you it is ok to delete a file. If I did, you would surely need
that one. I tend to backup, my backups so I would rather have multiple
copies of a file than risk not having any backup. Just spend a bit more time
organizing your files with Windows Explorer...
Links aren't as good to jpg??? Not sure what you are saying except that they
might be a lot larger in file size and take longer to download. Convert?
Sure, just print them to pdf just like you would any file. You might need to
use another pdf tool: www.primopdf.com is a good one and I like the option
of screen resolution or print.
I think that covers your questions...others will have different views.

Thanks David. Basics! i'm a master now!
Yes trying to be more consistent and thinking about adding a folder for
downloads but wanting to buy Expression Web 3 for an even better look.
to copy and paste Chinese content from a suppliers website into a word doc
then convert to PDF but its comes up a mess. Any tips? Can i add a folder
public_html for pictures which are actually saved website pages?
Is there anyway i can somehow transfer my files, content from PUB to
Expression or do i have to start from scratch? What are the benefits of
expression and how much different is it to PUB?
Is it o.k to delete the external files from local site in FTP as there are
many similiar files, some English, some Chinese?
Links to JPEG's aren't as good as PDF's, anyway of converting a JPEG to a
I read the thread between you and John G. in the regular newsgroup and it
appears that you got the basics down, and are getting your links to your
external files working. What is your question in this post?
I noticed a couple things from the other group... You are currently just
loading your external files into your 'public_html' folder...your root
folder or root directory. What John was suggesting was to create a
or another directory within the 'public_html' folder to contain your
external files instead of just letting them loose. He suggested a
called 'my_stuff'. I would suggest something even more simple such as
'downloads'. Then your link would be changed to:
instead of http://www.daltonwineltd.com/TNotes_05CR_CabMerlot_CH2960.pdf
I suggested 'downloads' instead of 'my_stuff' because I think using the
underscore confuses people. When you look at John's link you can't tell
there is an underscore because of the hyperlink underline. This suggests
people that they can put spaces in there file names, and that can break
links at worst, and at best create a bad looking link. For example you
All the '%20's in the link are spaces in your file. Either use the
underscore in the file or don't use either and instead use all lower case
perhaps 2008BqCabSavSouthEasternAustralia.doc...in other words use upper
case for each new word. What ever you do be consistent so that you don't
make mistakes in your files and link writing.
Once again, it is not clear what your question is in this post. Please
again. And for others who have happened upon this post the central
is how to include external files in a Publisher web, and the best article
describing this is: Including external files in a Publisher web:

You need to change the address by editing the hyperlink in your local
Publisher file by adding your website address URL/PDF file name, then
the pdf to your remote site by double click public_html on the remote
site and transferring the pdf using the arrow to public_html
The problem is: the pdf doc is on your local site, thats why the link
not work. the address is local address when you created the hyperlink.
just upload the pdf to your remote public_html then change the address
amending the hyperlink on your local PUB file.
Check the link on preview after you have worked out the correct address
editing hyperlink, but the pdf also needs to be under your remote
public_html. Ther are also other ways to fix the problem
I have made a website in Publisher 2007 and am fairly new to web
I have an Adobe document I want to add for download/print. I have put
icon on a page and now want to link to it so that when you click on
icon it opens the pdf format form to print.
I tried saving the document in the local file for the website, then
the add hyperlink to local file or folder but when i open my web page
explorer and click on the icon nothing happens. When I hover over the
shows there is a hyperlink
Frustrated new to web design.
