Saving Your Web Page

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated April 5, 2014)

Once you have created a document that you want to save as a Web page, actually doing the saving is quite easy. All you need to do is follow these steps:

  1. Complete your document, as desired.
  2. Press F12 to display the Save As dialog box.
  3. Using the Save As Type drop-down list at the bottom of the dialog box, choose HTML Document or Web Page as your file type.
  4. In the File Name box, specify a name you want used for the Web page.
  5. Click on Save.

If you are using Word 2000, Word 2002, or Word 2003, there is an even easier way you can save your document as a Web page:

  1. Complete your document, as desired.
  2. Choose Save As Web Page from the File menu. Word displays the Save As dialog box, with the Save As Type drop-down list already set to HTML Document.
  3. In the File Name box, specify a name you want used for the Web page.
  4. Click on Save.

During the saving process, the information in your document is translated into the HTML format used for Web pages. During the process, some formatting may need to be approximated, and some features may be lost altogether. You should make sure that you check out your saved document using a Web browser.
