If you are a Web developer for a company chances are good that you've received Word documents that you need to put up on a Web page. Now, you can simply put a link to the Word document on your Web site, but often it's better to convert the document to HTML and put it up in the style of your Web site. With Dreamweaver this is easy.
But Why Not Just "Save as Web Page..." in Word Itself?
While it's possible to have Word save documents as HTML files, when you do that you end up with HTML that has a lot of extra information. Word adds inline styles to every paragraph to indicate font information and other styles. And usually those styles are not the same as your Web site. So when you upload a Word document that's been saved as HTML, it looks wrong. Plus, the HTML is a lot larger than it needs to be. Dreamweaver converts Word documents to streamlined HTML and lets you add the styles and extras to the page quickly and easily.
