    all the worksheets in your Excel Workbook and link them together for ease of
    navigation.
   Hyperlinks – Microsoft Word links are extracted and converted into HTML links.
    These include mailto, html, file and document links.
   Table of Contents – automatically create a professional looking table of contents
    from virtually any document with the ability to preserve Microsoft Word table of
    contents. Especially great for large and complex documents.
   Split documents over many webpages or on one continuous webpage.



Look and Feel Features
Click to Convert creates HTML documents that look and feel like your originals and that
is the real beauty of this application. “Behind the scenes, this deceptively simple
program actually performs some pretty sophisticated Web programming” ZDNet Feb
2001. Here are a few features that help retain the look and feel of your documents:

   Cropping – remove the white space from around your documents with automatic
    cropping.
   Page zooming – scale your web pages to any specified size for better integration

    font if the original font is not available.
   Splitting of document information into text and graphic zones, with exact
    arrangement of the original document.
   Streamlined user interface for increased productivity and ease of use.
   NEW! Optimized HTML – smaller and more efficient web pages with the ability to
    create HTML for Netscape, Internet Explorer and other major browsers in a single
    file.

                                                                                          4
Publishing Features
Click to Convert has simplified the process of updating online documentation by giving
the user all the tools they need to convert original documents into HTML then publish
them to an intranet or website.

   NEW! Printing – create a printable version of your documents to give your visitors
    greater control over printing.
   Change the name of your documents waiting to be converted. Click on the
    document in your list and change the name the same way you would change a
    name in Windows Explorer.

    publishing. Select many documents at one time for faster conversion.

    web site.

that give the advanced user greater control over the HTML output. These include:

   Improved performance so you can continue to work while converting documents in
    the background.
   Automatic left-alignment of justified text and better handling of stretched and
    squashed text so that text does not need to be turned into images.
   Search Engine ready webpages are produced. Any text that is turned into images is
    added to the alt tag for that page so that search engines can reference all the text
    in your documents.
   NEW! Zoom – scale your documents to a specified pixel width with greater
    accuracy. No more overlapping text.
   Script Click to Convert – the technology inside Click to Convert is called PurePage.
    You can now control the conversion technology with your own scripts and run
    PurePage on a server or integrate it into your own applications for redistribution.
    Find out more by visiting www.purepage.com
   NEW! Server-side Click to Convert for Administrators – Purepage is the technology
    that sits inside Click to Convert. Purepage Server provides automated, centralized
    document publishing to your entire network or workgroup. Powerful administrative
    options give IT professionals total control over how and when documents are
    rendered. Installed on a network server, Purepage Server makes HTML renditions
    available on the fly to anyone with a web browser without even writing a single line
    of script! Find out more by visiting www.purepage.com

If you are just getting started with Click to Convert this Quick Start acts as a great step-
by-step guide for converting your files into HTML.

How to Click to Convert Microsoft Office files:

1.   Select one or more Microsoft Office files and drag and drop them onto the Click to

2.   Start the Click to Convert application and select the files you wish to convert from
     the list. If you have more than one file, they will appear in date order by default. If
     you have lots of files and are having trouble finding your file, double click the
     headings to sort by Name, Pages or Date Printed.

3.   Click the "Publish" button to Click to Convert the selected files into HTML and check
     the settings are all correct or make any changes. The default location is in the
     "output" folder where you installed Click to Convert.

                                                                                           8
Getting Started
1.   How much experience do I need with web publishing to be able to use Click
     to Convert?

     None - using Click to Convert is as easy as printing. You have several options to
     change the way that your files look in HTML - this is to give you flexibility in
     publishing. Click to Convert converts your files into HTML with a few clicks.

2.   What platforms does Click to Convert operate on?

     Windows 95/98, Windows NT, Windows Millenium (ME), Windows 2000 and now
     Windows XP.

3.   Which Windows applications does Click to Convert work with?

     Microsoft Office - including Project, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Visio. Adobe
     PageMaker and Illustrator, Lotus Smartsuite, genealogy software... in fact most
     Windows applications with a print command can be converted into HTML in a couple
     of clicks. If your document does not convert accurately, please contact us at
     feedback@clicktoconvert.com. If you are converting PowerPoint, Adobe Acrobat or
     a database, see our Compatibilities and Limitations section (page 39).

4.   How do I know if Click to Convert will work with my application?

     If your application has a print function, you will be able to use Click to Convert to
     publish your file into HTML. We recommend that you give it a go and see for
     yourself.

5.   In the quick start guide it says to "drag and drop" my Microsoft Office
     documents to convert them. What does 'drag and drop' mean and can I
     'drag and drop' any file?

     There are two methods of converting your Microsoft Office documents. You can
     open them, click print and choose the "Click to Convert" printer, or you can "drag
     and drop" your documents.

     This means you can select one (or several) Microsoft Office documents, without
     opening them in their native applications like Microsoft Word or Excel, and drag
     them onto the Click to Convert window. Click to Convert will automatically retrieve
     the documents and have them ready to convert.

     IMPORTANT: you must use the drag and drop method of converting your
     documents if you wish to convert internal MS Word links and table of contents
     correctly. You also need to use drag and drop to publish all the worksheets inside
     your MS Excel workbook.

     Please read our Quick Start Guide (page 6) for step-by-step instructions for using
     the drag and drop feature. You can also refer to the drag and drop section of help
     (page 38).

                                                                                             9
6.   Do the results of Click to Convert look the same in different browsers?

     Click to Convert uses cascading style sheets which need to be viewed with Internet
     Explorer 4.x and higher or Netscape Navigator 4.x and higher or any other
     compatible browser. In our experience this covers about 98% or web users.

7.   Is Click to Convert a substitute for a web editing program?

     No, Click to Convert complements your existing web editor. Click to Convert
     creates HTML from existing files that can be used as a part of your website or on
     your intranet - everyone has a web browser. You can edit the results of Click to
     Convert in many web editing tools such as Microsoft FrontPage 2000 and
     Macromedia Dreamweaver. You can also integrate your newly created HTML
     documents into the template for your corporate website or intranet. Read the
     Templates section (page 22) of this document for more information.

     Microsoft FrontPage 2000 and Macromedia DreamWeaver to make your changes.

2.   When I convert my document I would like to make the converted pages
     smaller than the original document - how can I do this?

     Click to Convert has a new zoom feature that you will find under the Advanced
     Settings. This feature will allow you to scale your documents to a specified width
     which will allow you to proportionally reduce or enlarge you pages.

     Some applications also allow you to adjust the size of your documents in the native
     application e.g. Microsoft Excel has a print option where you simply adjust the size
     of your document by a percentage (%) - this will allow you to fit more content onto
     a page. Your application may also have an option where you can fit your document
     to the paper size.

     If your aim is to display your document in the browser without the need to scroll
     horizontally or reduce the size of the page, then a good rule is to ensure that:
     a) you are viewing the original document at 100% (so there are no surprises when
     you convert your documents),
     b) cropping is turned on, and
     c) the margins are set so that you can see the entire width of the document in the
     original application without scrolling horizontally.


3.   My document is in color but the converted document comes out in black
     and white. How can I ensure that it comes out in color?

     Some applications default to black and white when you select Click to Convert's
     "Click to Convert II" printer. In most applications it is fixed by looking at the printer
     setup to ensure that you are not printing to black and white.


4.   My document is unusually wide or tall (like an Microsoft Excel spreadsheet
     or a Genealogy chart) - how can I ensure that it all comes out on the one
     page?

     Most applications let you set the paper size that you print out onto note, the paper
     sizes do vary from application to application. Since Click to Convert operates like a
     printer, you can modify how much is displayed on each HTML page by changing the
     paper size. Choose between the standard sizes or create your own custom sized
     page.

     (Please note - this solution is only for Windows NT)




                                                                  More Look and Feel FAQs…




                                                                                                 11
5.   My converted pages appear larger than my original document - why is this?

     Many applications display your documents smaller than they actually are printed
     out. For example, Microsoft Excel often displays its documents at 88% and
     Microsoft Word at 75% so you can see your documents on the screen but when you
     convert them, they can appear larger since they are converted at 100%.

     If your aim is to display your document in the browser without the need to scroll
     horizontally, then a good rule is to ensure that:
     a) you are viewing the original document at 100% (so there are no surprises when
     you convert your documents),
     b) that cropping is turned on, and
     c) the margins are set so that you can see the entire width of the document in the
     original application without scrolling horizontally.

6.   I can't see how I can change my images into GIFs - only PNG. Why is this
     and what is PNG?

     Any GIF image that uses a particular form of compression on a website is required
     to pay UNISYS a royalty. This is why we use the image format called PNG (portable
     network graphics) which are free to use and, as a bonus, smaller in size than GIFs.
     Since Click to Convert is designed to be viewed with later browsers, we have
     substituted the use of GIFs with PNGs.

7.   What are the background images and can I change them into JPEGs?

     The purpose of the background image is to hold images such as underlining, tables
     and other simple line art - PNG is the most appropriate format for these images. All
     images over a certain size, like photographs, are separated out so that you can
     choose the most appropriate format. If they are smaller than a particular size, your
     images will be included in the background image. You can change your background
     images into JPEGs by simply selecting JPEG under the "Text and Images" tab when
     you edit settings.

8.   Can I edit the name of the document once it is in Click to Convert?

     Yes you can - click on the document in your list and change the name the same way
     you would change a name in Windows Explorer.




                                                                       Navigation FAQs…




                                                                                            12
Navigation
1.   Will the links in my document work properly?

     Yes, the hyper-links in your documents are maintained. These include mailto, html,
     file and document links. You can also add a specific link to your homepage or other
     location, by entering an address under settings for the "home" link. If Click to
     Convert is creating a table of contents for your documents, a “contents” link to the
     contents page will appear on your navigation bar (unless you elect to display
     contents in a frame).

2.   My MS Word Links and table of contents are not converting the way I
     expected even though I am using Word headings. What can I do?

     You must drag and drop documents when converting the table of contents or any
     other internal MS Word links. If this does not fix the problem, look at the text in the
     original document to ensure that the links and headings are set up correctly.

3.   When I convert my documents into HTML, I do not want any navigation at
     all, especially for a one page document. How can I remove the navigation
     without knowing anything about HTML?

     By ensuring that none of the options are checked, you will be able to produce 'clean'
     HTML pages without any navigation. There is no need to know any HTML. Here is a
     check list quick check-list of options you do not want...

     Basic Settings:
     Include Click to Convert logo at the bottom of the page.
     Add dark borders around the pages.
     Include the "Home" link.

     Multi-Page Documents:
     Include links at top of page.
     Include links at bottom of page.
     Include page links at top of page.

4.   I have created a table of contents in my MS Word document – will this
     automatically convert into HTML?

     Yes, Click to Convert will automatically convert your headings into links proiding you
     use the drag and drop method of printing. You can choose which heading level
     denotes a section break e.g. if you use Heading 1 as a section heading then
     headings 2-5 as sub-headings, Click to Convert will create a table of contents that
     looks like this:

     Heading 1
        Heading   2
        Heading   2
        Heading   5
        Heading   3

     Heading 1
        Heading 4
        Heading 2
        Heading 2

     Please read the navigation section (page 27) for instructions on using MS Word‟s
     headings and how to create the same effect from other applications.


                                                                    More Navigation FAQs…




                                                                                               13

5.   How can I link one part of my document to another part of the same
     document?

     This is only available for Microsoft Word users. The feature in MS Word is called
     „bookmarks‟. You can set a bookmark by:

     a) placing the cursor where you want to link to
     b) click on the „Inset‟ menu option and choose „Bookmarks…‟ from the dropdown list
     c) enter the name of the text or page you are linking to (note, make sure there are
     no spaces in the name)
     d) select the text that you wish to link from
     e) click on the „Insert‟ menu option and choose „Hyperlink‟
     f) in that window you will find „Named location in file‟
     g) Click „browse‟ and choose the appropriate bookmark.

6.   I have several Worksheets inside one MS Excel Workbook. Will Click to
     Convert publish them all or just the active sheet? Will they somehow be
     joined?

     Click to Convert now has additional support for Microsoft Excel Workbooks. As with
     MS Word, you will need to drag and drop your documents onto the Click to Convert
     window to ensure that all your worksheets are published. Click to Convert will
     extract the names of the worksheets and link them all with navigation at the bottom
     of the HTML page (similar to navigating around your worksheets while inside Excel).

7.   Can I place more than one page from my original document onto each
     HTML page?

     Yes, you can merge web pages from the „Multi-Page Documents‟ section in the
     „Publish Settings‟ area. Choose how many pages you would like to appear on each
     HTML page. If you would like all the pages on one HTML page, simply enter how
     many pages exist in the original document.




                                                                  Trouble Shooting FAQs…




                                                                                           15
Printing
1.   How can my visitors print out the entire document once it is online?

     Under the advanced setting in Click to Convert, you will find the setting “Printing”.
     To allow your visitors to print out the entire document make sure the “Enable
     Printing Support in HTML Documents” is checked. Click to Convert will
     automatically create a printable version of your document and place a printing icon
     on the navigation toolbar. Your visitors will be able to choose which pages of your
     documents to print out.

     As additional information, printing of all HTML pages is controlled by the browser
     (Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer etc…) and each of your visitors may have
     their browser set up differently. Some may have wide margins or include headers
     and footers that are different in your browser. For this reason, we recommend
     reducing the size of printable version of your document. This will not alter the
     appearance of the published version.


2.   I would like my visitors to print out my document from the internet or
     intranet but some visitors report that the page breaks are not falling in the
     correct position - what can I do?

     Often the browser will often add additional information to the printed version like
     the location of the document or whether it is page 1 of 3. Also, the margins may be
     different to your browser so less may fit on each page.

     The best way to handle the issue is to slightly reduce the size of the printable
     version. Reduce the size of the printable version to 90% and do a test run by
     printing out the first 2 pages of your document. If they fit as expected (i.e. some of
     page 1 does not spill onto page 2 etc…), your visitors should have no problems.

3.   I cannot predict what type of browser that my visitors will be using. How
     can I ensure that what they print is consistent?

     As in the above question, the most important factor for consistency is to ensure that
     the pages from your original document match up onto the pages that they print out.
     Use the option inside Click to Convert to reduce the size of your printable document.

     If it is very important that the documents look the same, recommend a browser,
     nominate margin sizes and ask your visitors to ensure that headers and footers are
     turned off.

4.   My pages are printing out black even though they display correctly. What’s
     causing this?

     A particular version of Internet Explorer 5.0 did not support PNG images correctly.
     While this was quickly fixed by Microsoft, many people continue to have this version
     installed on their computers without realizing that the bug exists. The images
     displayed correctly but printed out as solid black. If you or one of your visitors has
     this problem, simply update Internet Explorer.

                                                                                              16
Templates
1.   Why would I use templates?

     Templates allow you to create HTML pages that look like your corporate Intranet or Website (including
     all links, layout and formatting). Users can simply specify a custom HTML template and Click to
     Convert will wrap this template around the HTML renditions that it publishes.

2.   How much knowledge of HTML do I need to be able to use this feature?

     It is important that you have a basic knowledge of HTML. For example, do you know what you are
     looking at when you see a webpage in HTML or could you construct a basic page in HTML? There are
     many websites and online tutorials that will take you through the basics and this is recommended
     before you use the template feature.

     If you have a basic knowledge of HTML, you will find the template feature very simple.

3.   A practical example showing how to use templates with Click to Convert.

     We have provided a sample using Purepage.com website. If you have a basic understanding of HTML,
     you will easily be able to follow this example. You will then be able to go on to integrate the HTML
     documents (that you render using Click to Convert) with your template. Template Example (see page
     22)

                                                                                                       17
Trouble Shooting
1.   I purchased Click to Convert around a year ago but it has reverted to the
     trial version and my registration key will not work. How can I fix this?

     Please contact tech@clicktoconvert.com as we may need to issue a new registration
     key.

2.   I uploaded my converted pages to my website but they look completely
     different to when I opened them on my computer - even my images are
     missing! What can I do?

     Not a problem - the output produced by Click to Convert is stored in one main folder
     with some sub-folders. Ensure that you upload everything in the main folder and
     the images and layout will appear as per your original document. If you know the
     final location of your converted files on your website, use the in-built ftp (file
     transfer protocol) function to ensure that everything is uploaded correctly.

3.   Some of my text is missing completely from my document - how can I get it
     back?

     Remove any squashed or stretched text from your original document or, under the
     "Kerning and Tracking" tab, select the option to "remove character spacing and
     kerning" - this will remove the stretching or any other special spacing.

4.   When I open Click to Convert it seems to get stuck or take forever to load
     up my documents. What's happening?

     All the files that appear in your list are prepared for conversion every time you load
     the Click to Convert application. This process may take a while if you have an
     extensive number of files or very large files in your list. The way to speed up this
     process or to prevent the application from becoming stuck at this point is to delete
     unnecessary files from the list view. You can delete files by highlighting them and
     clicking the delete button on the screen or pressing the delete button on your
     keyboard.

List View
Whenever you open the Click to Convert application, you will be presented with a list
view of all the files that have been "printed" and are waiting to be converted. Even once
you've converted your files, they will remain in your list view.

You can find the file that you would like to convert by sorting the information by Name,
number of pages or by Date. Double click on the title to sort a-z, double click a second
time to sort z-a.

You can change the name of your document waiting to be converted by clicking twice on
the file in the list view in the same way you would change the name of a file name in
Windows Explorer.


When I open Click to Convert it seems to get stuck or take forever to load up
my documents. What's happening?

All the files that appear in your list are prepared for conversion every time you load the

Publish Entire Excel Workbook with Links – People who use Microsoft Excel will be
familiar with the feature inside MS Excel that allows you to create many worksheets
within the one workbook. Click to Convert now publishes all the worksheets from within
a single workbook and links them together. The resulting HTML files are stored in one
folder with a number of sub-folders for each worksheet.




                                                                                            22

5.   Important Design Notes

Introduction
Click to Convert now provides templates which allows you to create HTML pages that
look like your corporate Intranet or Website (including all links, layout and formatting).

Users can simply specify a custom HTML template and Click to Convert will wrap this
template around the HTML renditions that it publishes.

In this tutorial we‟ll follow an example of creating a template for the Purepage.com
website. This means that all HTML documents we publish with this template will look
like the Purepage.com website. This template is located in the Templates folder where
you installed Click to Convert on your computer.

Background
You need to have a basic understanding of HTML to use the template feature provided in
Click to Convert. A good understanding of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) is also
beneficial but is not mandatory.



                                                                     Introducing Markers…




                                                                                             23
Markers
When publishing your documents, Click to Convert produces different components that
make up each HTML page. When placed together into an HTML page, these components
produce the HTML renditions that look like your original documents. The components
that make up HTML renditions are: Meta Tags, Page Title, HTML Head Tags and HTML
Body Tags.

Click to Convert allows you to specify where the components (described above) should
be inserted into your templates.

        You specify the location to insert a component by placing text
        “markers” in your template files. Click to Convert will scan your
        template file for these markers and insert the appropriate component
        in this specific location.

The markers you can use are:

      {C2C_TITLE} – This marker tells Click to Convert to insert the Page Title at this
      location. This marker is optional and may be omitted.

      {C2C_META} – This marker tells Click to Convert to insert it‟s HTML Meta Tags
      at this location. Meta tags help identify your HTML renditions as being created by
      Click to Convert. They also provide a good place for you to specify keywords that
      relate to your documents so that users can search them more efficiently. It is
      important to place this tag on a separate line by itself. This marker is optional and
      may be omitted.

      {C2C_HEAD} – This marker tells Click to Convert to insert it‟s HTML Head Tags
      at this location. Head tags help control the layout and look and feel of your
      document. It is important to place this tag on a separate line by itself. This
      marker is necessary and must be included.

      {C2C_BODY} – This marker tells Click to Convert to insert it‟s HTML Body Tags
      at this location. Body tags help control the layout and look and feel of your
      document. It is important to place this tag on a separate line by itself. This
      marker is necessary and must be included.

      {C2C_FILE} – This marker tells Click to Convert to copy the file specified to the
      same location as the HTML rendition that is created. This marker allows you to
      specify additional files (for example CSS style sheets and images) that need to
      accompany your HTML renditions. For example, {C2C_FILE="NavigationBar.gif"}
      would copy the “NavigationBar.gif” file from the template folder to the HTML
      output folder. It is important to place this tag on a separate line by itself. This
      marker is optional and may be omitted.

      {C2C_PAGE_HEIGHT} – This marker tells Click to Convert to insert the specific
      pixel height for this page. This allows you to specify page footers so they appear
      at the correct location (below the page content). This marker is optional and may
      be omitted.


                                                               Example – PurePageCom…




                                                                                              24
Example - Purepage.com

Note: This example is based on the PurePageCom template that is found in the
Templates\PurePageCom folder where you installed Click to Convert on your computer.

If we look at the Purepage.com website we can see that there are four main components
of the layout – the page header, the side navigation, the page content and the footer
copyright.

We want all the HTML renditions we publish using the Purepage.com template to look
like the Purepage.com website. In essence, we want to replace the page content area
with the documents we publish. We want to retain the page header, side navigation and
footer consistent.




                                       Steps for Creating the PurePageCom template…




                                                                                        25
Steps involved in creating the PurePageCom template:

   1.   First, we need to group all the files used in this HTML page into a new folder.
        This folder should include the HTML template file, any image files that the HTML
        page references, any CSS style sheets the HTML page references and any other
        files referenced.

   2.   Next, we need to open the HTML template file (from now on simply called the
        template file) in a text editor such as Notepad. At the top of the HTML file, you
        need to specify the additional files that are referenced by this HTML template
        by using the {C2C_FILE} marker. These referenced files will then be copied
        when an HTML rendition is created. We added the following lines to the top of
        the template file (it is important to place these markers on separate lines by
        themselves):

        {C2C_FILE="ASPGuildButton10030.gif"}
        {C2C_FILE="ASPWire-btn.gif"}
        {C2C_FILE="clearpixel.gif"}
        {C2C_FILE="navbar_l.gif"}
        {C2C_FILE="navbar_top_r.gif"}
        {C2C_FILE="Screenshot.gif"}
        {C2C_FILE="VBWire-btn.gif"}
        {C2C_FILE="site.css"}
        {C2C_FILE="style.css"}

   3.   We want to tell Click to Convert to replace the “Purepage.com” page title with
        the page title that Click to Convert will generate for the HTML rendition. We do
        this by replacing the current page title that is between the <title> and </title>
        tags with the {C2C_TITLE} marker as follows:

        <TITLE>{C2C_TITLE}</TITLE>

   4.   Next, we want to specify where Click to Convert should add its HTML meta tags
        (this is an optional step and can be left out). We decided to add them straight
        under the page title by inserting the following line (it is important to place this
        marker on a separate line by itself):

        {C2C_META}

   5.   Now we need to specify where Click to Convert should insert its HTML head
        tags. This is important as it allows Click to Convert to produce pages that look
        and feel like your original document. We do this by inserting the {C2C_HEAD}
        marker in the template file before the closing </HEAD> tag (it is important to
        place this marker on a separate line by itself).

   6.   Now we need to tell Click to Convert where it should insert the page content.
        We want to replace the existing page content with the {C2C_BODY} marker to
        achieve this. To do this, we scan through the HTML template until we come to
        the point where the current page content begins. Tip: Search for the text you
        want to replace, in this case: “The best way to publish information online”.
        Simply replace the entire current page content with the {C2C_BODY} marker
        (it is important to place this marker on a separate line by itself).

   7.   The last step it to make sure that the footer appears at the bottom of the page
        and not overlapping the page content. We do this by making sure the page
        content is placed inside an HTML table cell and that the table cell has the page
        height specified as its height. This will force the footer to appear below this
        cell. We can do this using the {C2C_PAGE_HEIGHT} marker as follows:

        <TD height="{C2C_PAGE_HEIGHT}">




                                    More Information including Important Design Notes…




                                                                                              26
Once we completed these changes, we simply tell Click to Convert to use this template
when creating HTML renditions that we want to have the Purepage.com website‟s look
and feel. From the Click to Convert “Publish Settings” window, select the “Templates”
option from the tree view on the left. Click the “Change” button and select the HTML
template file to use – in this case PurePageCom.htm:




Important Design Notes

1. The {C2C_META}, {C2C_HEAD}, {C2C_BODY} and {C2C_FILE} tags must all be by
themselves on individual lines in your template files. The {C2C_TITLE} and
{C2C_PAGE_HEIGHT} tags may be placed anywhere.

2. All support files (for example, images) to be copied using the {C2C_FILE} tag must
be in the same folder as the template file.




                                                                           Navigation…




                                                                                         27
Navigation
Click to Convert‟s navigation is designed to help your visitors navigate around your
document and to your website. This section discusses how to create an effective table of
contents and allow visitors to easily move around your HTML documents.



Table of Contents
Automatically build a meaningful table of contents (toc) using one of Click to Convert‟s
three methods for display on a separate contents page or in an HTML frame. The
methods include using:

1.   The headings from the original document.
     This method is particularly useful for people who use MS Word‟s „heading‟ feature.
     This very simple feature is explained below. If you use this method with other
     applications, Click to Convert will search your text for possible headings to create
     the toc.

2.   Page numbers.
     This method will produce a table of links to each HTML page e.g. Page 1, Page 2,
     Page 3…

3.   Prefix characters.
     Use this method for almost all applications by placing specific characters in front of
     text that you wish to convert into headings and section headings.


1. The Headings from the Original Document

Microsoft Word has a feature that lets you create and easily update a table of contents
for any Word document. It is these self-selected headings that Click to Convert looks for
to create the HTML navigation. It is quick, simple and very effective so this method is
recommended for MS Word users.

Here‟s how to use the MS Word heading feature:

1.   Make the formatting toolbar visible – click “View” on the main menu and choose
     “toolbars” then “formatting” from the drop down list.
2.   Next to the font and font size you will see a drop down list displaying “Normal”.
3.   Choose the text you want as a heading, drop down the list and choose the style you
     wish to apply.

When you convert this document, all the text that is labeled as a heading will be turned
into a table of contents link.

IMPORTANT:

1)   You must use the drag and drop method of converting your documents if you would
     like to convert MS Word internal links or table of contents headings.
2)   You need Microsoft Word 97 / 2000 or XP installed on the same computer as Click to
     Convert.

TIP: Sometimes Microsoft Word automatically turns some text into a heading that was
not intended to be a heading. If you convert your document and unexpected text turns
up as a heading in your HTML pages, check that it is not a heading in your original
document.

Any text that resembles a heading in MS Word‟s list of headings can sometimes be
automatically changed into a heading by MS Word e.g. a certain font that is bold and 14
point.


                                                               Original Headings Example…




                                                                                              28
TIP: You can choose which style you want to be the section heading in Click to Convert
e.g. if you would like „Heading 1‟ as the section heading your HTML navigation will look
like this:

Heading 1
   Heading   2
   Heading   2
   Heading   5
   Heading   3

Heading 1
   Heading 4
   Heading 2
   Heading 2

IMPORTANT: To extract MS Word‟s Headings and create a table of contents, you must
use the drag and drop method.


2. Page numbers

Creating a table of contents using page number is a simple method to ensure links to
every page in your document and is particularly useful if you make references to specific
pages in your documents e.g.

Page   1
Page   2
Page   3
Page   4…


TIP: Click to Convert will link to the HTML pages so it is important that you do not place
more than one page from your original document on each HTML page.


                                                                        Prefix Characters…




                                                                                             29
3. Prefix characters

Use this method for almost all applications by placing specific characters in front of text
that you wish to convert into headings and section headings e.g. by placing “^&” this
text will become a heading and by placing the text “^&&” in the original document, the
text will automatically become a section heading.

Here is some sample text:

         ^&&Table of Contents

         ^&The headings from the original document

         Microsoft Word has a feature that lets you create and easily update a table of
         contents for any Word document. It is these self-selected headings that Click to
         Convert looks for to create the HTML navigation. It is quick, simple and very
         effective so this method is recommended for MS Word users.

         ^&Page numbers

         Creating a table of contents using page number is a simple method to ensure
         links to every page in your document and is particularly useful if you make
         references to specific pages in your documents

         ^&Prefix characters

         Use this method for almost all applications by placing specific characters in
         front of text that you wish to convert into headings and section headings. For
         example, to make the above heading part of the HTML toc simply add the
         special characters that you set up in Click to Convert e.g.


This is how toc for the above text would convert into HTML:

Table of Contents
   The headings from the original document
   Page numbers
   Prefix Characters

TIP: The special characters will be omitted from the final HTML document.



                                                                    Multi-Page Navigation…




                                                                                              30
Multi-page Navigation
Multi-Page settings are there to help your visitors navigate your converted files.

Include Links at top of page - This option is recommended for files with more than
one webpage. It informs your visitors how many pages there are in your file. It also
lets them scroll to the next page or previous page or to the first and last pages.

Include Links at the bottom of page - recommended for any page that requires
vertical scrolling. It helps you maintain the flow of your content by allowing your visitors
to move onto the next page without needing to scroll back up to the top of the current
page.

Include Page links at top of page - This option is particularly useful for long files.
Click to Convert will automatically include the previous and following 13 pages e.g. if
you have a 40 page file and you are on page 20, you will have links to pages 21-33 as
well as links to pages 7-19.

Merging Webpages - With the default settings, one page, as defined by your
application, will be converted into one webpage. For example, if you have a 20 page file
Click to Convert will produce 20 webpages. The "merging webpages" function lets you
have more than one page from your original document on each webpage. e.g. with your
20 page file, if you choose to have "New webpage every 4 pages printed" you will have 5
webpages that each contain 4 original pages.




                                                                                     Links…




                                                                                               31
Links
Links fall into different categories. Click to Convert maintains many types of links
automatically.

Mailto, HTML, File and Document links: Click to Convert will extract links that looks
like links e.g. http://www.clicktoconvert.com, www.clicktoconvert.com or
mailto:sales@clicktoconvert.com. The only exception is if you are converting your
documents into images.

Extended Microsoft Word Support: In Microsoft Word, Click to Convert will extract
internal links even if they do not look like links (e.g. sales or home) providing you use
the drag and drop method of printing. You need Microsoft Word 97 / 2000 or XP
installed on the same computer as Click to Convert. Click to Convert will also extract
your table of contents (TOC) links to provide an HTML TOC in a frame or on a separate
page.



Extended Microsoft Excel Support

Microsoft Excel allows users to create more than one worksheet within each workbook.
Previously, Click to Convert only consistently published the active worksheet. Now Click
to Convert will publish all your worksheets within a workbook and provide links to the
different worksheets. You must use the drag and drop method of printing.




                                                                                Advanced…




                                                                                            32
Advanced

Images
Click to Convert offers a simple way to web-ready your images. For best results, please
ensure that your images are of a good quality before printing your document with the
"Click to Convert II" printer.

PNG or JPEG?
Different types of images require different image formats to get the best quality
conversion. For example, line drawings such as graphs or line art are best converted into
PNG (portable network graphics) and they contain only 256 colors. Photographs, or
other equally complicated images using '000's of colors, are best converted using the
JPEG image format.

The Optimize Option
You can allow Click to Convert to compare the size of the image formats - the software
will select the smallest format. This option is selected by default.

Why Click to Convert uses the PNG and not the GIF image format:
Any GIF image that uses a particular form of compression on a website is required to
pay UNISYS a royalty. This is why we use the image format called PNG (portable
network graphics) - they are free to use and, as a bonus, smaller in size than GIFs.
Since Click to Convert 2.0 is designed to be viewed with later browsers, we have
substituted the use of GIFs with PNGs.

Background images
The purpose of the background image is to hold images such as underlining, tables and
other simple line art - PNG is the most appropriate format for these images because this
format creates the smallest file size. If you select the option to turn your images into
JPEGs, your background images will also be turn into JPEGs.

All images over a certain size, like photographs, are separated out so that you can
choose the most appropriate format. Version 2.0 of Click to Convert needs version 4.0 or
higher of both Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator and PNG images are supported
by this level of browser.

How Click to Convert handles small and large images:
Small images are included in the background image. Once an image reaches a certain
size does it become a separate file e.g. "Image12.png".

Image Quality
This option is only relevant for JPEG images. The quality of your images has a direct
relationship with the size of the file they create when converted. By default, your
images are converted at 80% which will maintain a high quality conversion while
producing a smaller file than using 100%.

If the quality of your images are of high importance like photos on a photographer's
website, choose 100% and expect larger file sizes. Please check your output to see how
this option affects your images and choose the setting best for your situation.




                                                                  Kerning and Tracking…




                                                                                            33
Kerning and Tracking
Remove Character Spacing and Kerning

The conversion process is a little more complicated when the text in your original
document is justified, stretched or squashed (tracking and kerning). This is because
HTML does not allow for any special spacing in text, called inter-character spacing.

Remove Character Spacing and Kerning is an option designed to automatically retain
your text as text, no matter the type of spacing. This means that the words in a
particular line are joined together instead of being placed in a certain position on your
HTML page. As an example, if your text is justified, when you Click to Convert your
document, your text will automatically be left-aligned. This will slightly change the way
that some of your documents look, but it will retain the text as text and, most
importantly, it will work automatically which reduces your workload.

If it is important for your document to look exactly as the original, you might like to look
into the option of turning your text into images as described below.


Text as an Image

With standard formatting e.g. when text is not justified, stretched or squashed, your
text will be automatically be turned into text. When any of the above examples occur
and you have selected the option to turn your text into images when “Only when
stretching or squashing exceeds” a specified %, some of your text may be converted
into images in order to retain the original format of your file.

These examples all occur because HTML cannot handle the unusual spacing of text. In
order to maintain the original look and feel of your file Click to Convert turns that text
into images.

When text is converted into an image it will reside as a part of the background image
but the words will be included in the Alt tag so that search engines can still index that
text.




                                                                                     Zoom…




                                                                                               34
Zoom
Zooming allows you to specify the width of the resultant webpages. Your webpages will
be scaled to the pixel width that you specify. Most modern websites are produced to fit
800 pixels wide but if your visitors are more likely to have older screens, 600 pixels wide
is sufficient.

TIP: Even though this feature is called zoom, you are also able to increase the size of
your webpages.

TIP: you can reduce the length of your webpages by reducing the width because all
your webpages are kept in proportion.



                                                                                 Printing…




                                                                                              35
Printing
This great feature allows you to give your visitors greater control over printing the HTML
documents created using Click to Convert. Printing is controlled by the browser (Internet
Explorer, Netscape Navigator etc…) so Click to Convert provides a second printable
version of your documents that are formatted especially for printing. Click to Convert will
also add a print icon to the navigation bar (look at the navigation bar at the top of each
page of this document).

TIP – make sure that you test your document on your system before publishing. If the
first page spills over onto the second page, you will need to reduce the size of your
printable pages (this does not affect the published version). See the questions below:

TIP – to see how a document prints, try printing this Help document. Please note that it
is around 45 pages, though you are able to print a selection of pages e.g. pages 3-5.


How can my visitors print out the entire document once it is online?

Under the advanced setting in Click to Convert, you will find the setting “Printing”. To
allow your visitors to print out the entire document make sure the “Enable Printing
Support in HTML Documents” is checked. Click to Convert will automatically create a
printable version of your document and place a printing icon on the navigation toolbar.
Your visitors will be able to choose which pages of your documents to print out.

As additional information, printing of all HTML pages is controlled by the browser
(Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer etc…) and each of your visitors may have their
browser set up differently. Some may have wide margins or include headers and footers
that are different in your browser. For this reason, we recommend reducing the size of
printable version of your document. This will not alter the appearance of the published
version.


I would like my visitors to print out my document from the internet or intranet
but some visitors report that the page breaks are not falling in the correct
position - what can I do?

Often the browser will often add additional information to the printed version like the
location of the document or whether it is page 1 of 3. Also, the margins may be
different to your browser so less may fit on each page.

The best way to handle the issue is to slightly reduce the size of the printable version.
Reduce the size of the printable version to 90% and do a test run by printing out the
first 2 pages of your document. If they fit as expected (i.e. some of page 1 does not spill
onto page 2 etc…), your visitors should have no problems.


I cannot predict what type of browser that my visitors will be using. How can I
ensure that what they print is consistent?

As in the above question, the most important factor for consistency is to ensure that the
pages from your original document match up onto the pages that they print out. Use the
option inside Click to Convert to reduce the size of your printable document.

If it is very important that the documents look the same, recommend a browser,
nominate margin sizes and ask your visitors to ensure that headers and footers are

                                                                                              36
Publishing Locations

Local Computer
You can find the location of your converted documents by pressing the "Output" button
on the main window of Click to Convert (under the list view).

You can change the location of your converted files. By default the converted documents
are saved in your main directory under "Program Files". In the "Click to Convert" folder
you will find an "Output" folder that contain all the files you've converted.

e.g. C:\Program Files\ClickToConvert2\Output\.... (then the name of your file)

If you are converting several files at once, each file will appear in its own folder
containing the HTML page, images etc...

TIP: Remember, when you upload the output, ensure that you upload the main folder
that includes all the images and positioning (.css) information, NOT just the .html pages
by themselves.



Name the Webpages
This section explains how to change the file name of your output.

The output produced by Click to Convert needs to label each separate page produced
when converting any file. By default these pages are called "index.html". If you have
many pages they will be called "index.html", "index2.html", "index3.html" etc... Since
the people viewing the output produced by Click to Convert will see this label in the URL
(or address), you may want to change the file name.

TIP: Change the name of your document by clicking on the document name in the list
view and type in the new name.

TIP: You can only include one name so the numbering system explained above will
apply to multi-page documents.

TIP: You can change the extension of the file name e.g. ".htm". If you omit the
extension, the software will automatically add ".html" onto the end of the name that you
have nominated.




                                                                  FTP (Remote Publishing)…




                                                                                             37
FTP (Remote Publishing)
To make your converted files available on your website you can either manually upload
the output to your website or use the built-in FTP publishing option in the “Publish
Settings” window that appears whenever you are about to convert a file(s).

To make use of the FTP publishing that is built into Click to Convert, check the box
provided and enter in the appropriate location. Your files will be automatically uploaded
once they have finished converting.


I uploaded my converted pages to my website but they look completely
different to when I opened them on my computer - even my images are
missing! What can I do?
Not a problem - the output produced by Click to Convert is stored in one main folder
with a sub-folder. Ensure that you upload everything in the main folder and the images
and layout will appear as per your original document.

If you know the final location of your converted files on your website, use the in-built
FTP function to ensure that everything is uploaded correctly.

                                                                                            38
Drag and Drop
This great feature speeds up the process of Click-to-Converting your Microsoft Office
documents. You can also use drag and drop to convert many other applications but it is
designed for Microsoft Office applications.

Simply select one or more documents and move your cursor over the Click to Convert
window or the Click to Convert icon. Click to Convert will then automatically retrieve
your documents and have them ready for publishing to HTML. You must select the
documents individually; you cannot drag and drop a folder that contains the documents
you wish to Click-to-Convert.

MICROSOFT WORD LINKS: You must use the drag and drop method of converting
your documents if you wish to extract MS Word hyperlinks, mail and table of contents
links.

POWERPOINT: In order to convert you PowerPoint documents from Windows 95/98,
you must use the drag and drop method of converting your documents. You will not be
able to convert PowerPoint from Windows 95/98 using the print method.

MICROSOFT EXCEL WORKBOOK: A workbook is the name Microsoft gives to a group
of spreadsheets (or worksheets) in Excel. By dragging and dropping your MS Excel files,
Click to Convert will automatically publish all the worksheets in your workbook and link
them together.

TIP: When converting a document that is in an application with many different windows,
like a Genealogy application with several layers, the highlighted section will be Click-to-
Converted.



                                                          Compatibilities and Limitations…




                                                                                              39
Compatibilities and Limitations
Click to Convert is built to be compatible with a variety of applications. Rather than
building specific commands for each application, Click to Convert works with standard
commands. This means that Click to Convert will work with applications we've never
heard of before.



    Limitations of Click to Convert

    Limitations of HTML
    Do you use a desk top publishing application? This section is important for you to
    read.

    Applications that are compatible with Click to Convert




Limitations
The limitations of Click to Convert are a function of a) Click to Convert and b) HTML


A) Limitations of Click to Convert:

1) Click to Convert does not support the following applications (yet):
         Adobe Acrobat
         Some database software
         Adobe Photoshop
Do you have an application that is not converting correctly? Please send us an email at
tech@clicktoconvert.com and tell us what's happening.

2) Click to Convert will convert your hyper links but will not convert your internal links.
The exception is Microsoft Word. These internal links will convert correctly when using
the drag and drop method.

3) PowerPoint – in order to convert your PowerPoint documents on Windows 95/98 you
need to use the drag and drop method.

4) The number of pages that you can convert at one time is dependent upon a few
things:
        the platform on which Click to Convert is running (memory, processor),
        the size of the pages,
        the contents of the pages e.g. graphics,
        other software that you may have running.
For example, we have successfully converted a standard Microsoft Word document (that
contains a few images) on Windows 98 machine with 64 MB RAM that is 600 pages long.




                                                                      Limitations of HTML…




                                                                                              40
B) Limitations of HTML:

If you've ever created a web page by hand, you will know that HTML has its own set of
rules and limitations. This only causes difficulty when trying to convert complex
documents into HTML that were created in sophisticated applications.

For example, documents created in desk top publishing tools, like Quark XPress or
Adobe PageMaker will only convert accurately if they are designed with HTML in mind.
This is due to the flexibility of desk top publishing tools and the relative inflexibility of
HTML.

    When using any application the key to accurate conversions is to keep the
    limitations of HTML in mind.

Some things that HTML does not support include stretched or squashed text (tracking or
kerning), unusual fonts (especially symbol fonts) and rotated text. Click to Convert,
however, is designed to handle these types of text and produce an appropriate solution.

Here is how Click to Convert will handle text that is not supported by HTML:
Stretched and squashed text - The problem is caused by the fact that HTML doesn't
support unusual spacing. By default, Click to Convert will automatically turn stretched or
squashed text into text with standard spacing. It will also ensure that your text flows
smoothly (one word after the other).

If the look of your original document is very important, you can choose to turn all your
text into images or, if your document only contains some unusual text, you can set a
tolerance level (as a %) e.g. if a particular piece of text is more than 10% different in
HTML than in the original document Click to Convert will turn it into an image.

Fonts - the font that your viewers see your documents in is heavily dependent upon the
fonts installed on their own computer. This means that if you produce a document in a
font that another computer does not recognize, its browser will determine the substitute
font. The new font will be as close as possible but it is likely that the font is slightly
larger or smaller and this will have an affect on the resulting HTML.

Click to Convert handles your fonts behind the scenes. When you convert your
documents, Click to Convert notes the original font as well as mapping every font with
an appropriate substitute instead of leaving it to chance.

Rotated text - HTML doesn't support rotated text at all. Any rotated text in your
documents will be turned into images.




                                                                   Compatible Applications…




                                                                                                41

Click to Convert is developed by Inzone Software Limited. Inzone is a privately owned company based in
New Zealand and has been dedicated to helping businesses thrive with innovative software solutions since
1996.

Click to Convert, first released in Nov 1999, was developed in response to issues related to the creation of
documents for the web - lack of people with sufficient skills, time or patience to faithfully reproduce
documents to HTML. Prior to Click to Convert there was no easy way to move documents to the web or
intranet while keeping faithful to the original.
