Many people don't realize that sometimes the best tool isn't the one that is best designed or does the best job, but rather the one that you are most familiar with. If you read my last paragraph above, very carefully, you will notice that it is in the past tense. I don't have a web page any more. The reason that I used OOo for this was that I only spent about 15 minutes a week doing HTML, so finding a program and then learning a program that was designed specifically for this purpose just didn't seem like a worthwhile investment of time.On 05/07/11 09:07, Robert Derman wrote:NoOp wrote:On 06/25/2011 03:37 PM, Alexandro Colorado wrote:On Sat, Jun 25, 2011 at 7:37 AM, Simon Phipps <email@example.com> wrote:On 25 Jun 2011, at 08:33, Ian Lynch wrote:Manfred wrote: "I still believe that PDF is the best solution to distribute finalversionsof text (and maybe other office) documents." I'd say yes if they are likely to be printed on paper, no if it is only likely to be read from a screen.I disagree. Once a document no longer needs editing (and this is a frequent need in daily life - think purchase receipt, invoice, insurance schedule and so on) it needs to be provided in an electronic format that cannot be easily altered. PDF plays this role, ODF doesn't.No, but HTML does. More to the point, chm files also are build forread-only. Surely they are more microsoft based, but even Read (activityfrom the OLPC/Sugar), had to add a webkit renderer for another popular format -- epub. Which of course is done for read-only porpouses. So a bigger discussion than demanding PDF reader, might be to upgrade the very old HTML renderer in LibreOffice to something like webkit.Might updating LO's HTML capability also improve its ability to create and edit HTML? Back when I was maintaining a web page, I seem to remember using OOo Writer for this, so if I remember correctly OOo, and therefore LO can create and edit HTML, but it would certainly improve its usefulness to small businesses if it could do it even better.Hi Robert,There are many excellent open source HTML editors available for many platforms. LO does not need to 'recreate the wheel'. If you need a good package email me directly with some details of the platform you are using and type of HTML pages you are editing and I will send some links to you.
