Working with Web Page Templates When you create a new document in Word by selecting a Web Pages template, a new document is created. The new document will contain placeholder text and some hyperlinks and bookmarks that you can use as a basis for creating your own page. Because some of the work is already done for you, choose the template that most closely meets your needs. However, keep in mind that you can change the template in many ways by using Word’s tools. Here’s a new document that was created using the Frequently Asked Questions template. The template already created some sample hyperlinks for you that will help users navigate the page. The targets of these hyperlinks are bookmarks in the page. For example, clicking the “When is…?” hyperlink scrolls the page as shown. Notice that the template already contains “Back to top” hyperlinks, which when clicked will scroll back to the top of the page. To change the template to use your own content, you just edit the hyperlinks to change their content, and then add, delete, and change text as you normally would in Word. To edit a hyperlink: 1. Right-click the hyperlink to open the shortcut menu, point to Hyperlink, and then click Edit Hyperlink. The Edit Hyperlink dialog box opens. 2. Type the new text in the Text to display text box. For example, the following figure shows the “When is…?” hyperlink being changed to “When is the company picnic?” 3. Click the OK button to finish editing the hyperlink. The hyperlink now contains your own content. It also contains the hyperlink to the section of the document that answers this question. The next step is to edit the heading and content of the document. If you click the hyperlink, the page automatically scrolls to the heading you need to change. 4. Select the text to change, and then type the new text. You change the text itself, and you can also format it using any of Word’s formatting options. 5. Continue selecting and entering text until you finish the question and answer. As you can see, using the template saved you some work—you didn’t need to create the bookmark locations or the hyperlinks to them. You can edit the rest of the text in this template using the same techniques. And best of all, just like any other Web page, you can add a theme, pictures, special fonts, and other formatting options to enhance the page. The other templates work in the same way.
