    Word to Web Publishing

    I am looking for a good, easy to use, not too expensive program that will convert my Word manual into a Web document. I have found Republico XDK, which is expensive but looks to have a lot of features and Word2Web, less expensive with less features.

    Has anyone had experience with either of these or tips on any others that may be around.

    Re: Word to Web Publishing

    Just curious here - is there a reason you can't use the File | Save as Web Page... option in Word?

    Are you looking for a more cleaned version of the page than can be generated by Word?

    Republico XDK appears to be a very powerful piece of software far beyond what Word could do itself. I generally have experience with document management systems but looking at the Republico site, I am really rather impressed with its reported functionality.....are you planning to do this as a one off for your manual or on a regular basis as it appears there is a 30 day evaluation

    I work for a company that resells a knowledge management product which will easily produce a web site that can be used internally or externally. This product is not in my area but you can see Unicon Group Ltd. - Zavanta for more information.

    Yes XDK seems to be packed with functions that I cant seem to find in other programs. I just didnt want to accept that this was the only option and our worksite is meant to get quotes from 3 different providers.

    I have 3 large manuals to upkeep and if we get a good program like xdk I am likely to have at least 3 more.

    Depending on your budget and needs, you also could consider open source content management systems like Plone (based on Zope).

    I don't know where they get these names. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Added: This is an interesting idea: The plone.org home page detects your Google query and highlights those words... http://www.google.com/search?q=plone+open+source (click the result for plone.org).

    Just came across this one today: http://holloway.co.nz/docvert/index.html

    Not sure if that will meet your needs, but looks promising.
