    Publisher is NOT much of a web page editor.
    Have you taken a look at any of the editors that can be found in the Software Finds and Wants board?

    Now running HP Pavilion a6528p, with Win7 64 Bit OS.

    Did you look at any of the software suggested in the thread starting at <post:=559,187>post 559,187</post:>?
    Or <post:=530,740>post 530,740</post:>
    Or <post:=559,273>post 559,273</post:>
    Or <post:=559,330>post 559,330</post:>

    Try searching on a "HTML" editor software.

    <img src=/S/thankyou.gif border=0 alt=thankyou width=40 height=15> I thank you for the information; however, I think I'll stick with Publisher. I've had web sites in the past, and I created them with MS Word. They weren't fancy, but this time I want to be a little more creative by having links to several different pages. I think I have that part out of the way. My major problem now is putting a large document into a Publisher page. I can link pages using the "Create Text Box Link.

    Re: Web page size(?) (Publisher 2003)

    I think what <!profile=DaveA>DaveA<!/profile> is trying to say is that while Publisher can be used for web page design, it is primarily a desktop publishing tool (and it does a very good job at that), but its primary function is the design and publishing of printed materials. While you can use Word to produce a spreadsheet (of sorts) and you can use Excel to produce a letter, I don't think you'd be very satisfied using either one of them for those particular purposes. Most MS Office applications can be used to produce simple web pages, but as you are experiencing, their ability is very restrictive and limited as opposed to using a dedicated web design package (such as FrontPage) or any of the many other products which are available. Also, the code which is generated by Publisher or Word or Excel to produce html (web) documents is tremendously bloated. If you have any plans to produce anything more than very simple one or two page sites in the future, I would really recommend dedicated web design software.

    As for your current problem, what happens if you "File>Import Word Document (this may or may not produce the result that you desire)?
