FrontPage and InfoGORound Content

By Charles Hopkins Published 05/27/2007 | Web Design

There are several websites that provide content for websites and e-Books. Of these InfoGORound is the best value. You will be overwhelmed at the variety and amount of content. However, you may be at a loss as to how to convert the Rich Text Format articles to HTML so you can put them on the Web. If you do a search for RTF files to HTML software you will find some available but rather expensive. One commercial software cost over 300.

However, if you have a copy of FrontPage that came on your computer or with Microsoft Office you have an excellent solution. FrontPage is a WYSIWYG program and it automatically converts both TXT and RTF files to HTML.

So how do you convert these files to HTML? You start with a new blank page. You create a single cell table, centered at 700 pixels with a white background. With your curser inside the table you click on INSERT and then FILE from the drop down menu. You then navigate to the letter.rtf file and click open. It will automatically insert the letter copy. You can then add more formatting and the graphics.

Many of InfoGORound content packages include graphics and these can easily be inserted into your web pages. These graphics that InfoGORound provides are very professional. You can insert your graphics into the one cell table with the text of the letter.rtf file. The reason you set your table to 700 pixels was because that is the width of the header and footer graphics. You can then set the background of the page using the background images that InfoGORound provides.

It does not take a lot of time to learn how to create single page websites. But FrontPage is such a powerful program that you should get a book or CD from Video Professor. This is much better than attending expensive classes.

FrontPage comes with THEMES that create very attractive websites complete with navigation buttons and background graphics. You can purchase additional THEMES online from web sites or templates on CDs from eBay.

Learning to use any software program is actually quite rewarding. There is a feeling of fulfillment as you learn a new feature that you did not know existed. Plus you gain confidence to market your new skills. With your new knowledge of Front Page you can market your skills to businesses that want a web page. You will find that you can create some very professional web sites in a relatively short time.

If you have one of the newer versions of FrontPage like 2002 or 2003, you will have even more THEMES to choose from. If you don't have FrontPage you can get one very reasonably on eBay.

InfoGORound provides many bundles of text articles grouped together into different categories. FrontPage with InfoGORound content is the perfect match.
