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.

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.

If you are of a mind to actually look at the the HTML that Word produces--or if you have to edit it--you'll find that it's typical of code produced by an automatic translation program: bloated by unnecessary code and not at all something you could transform to another medium.

If you never have to look at it, it might be okay. The fact that it's trying to reproduce the page layout in HTML is most of the reason why the code is yucky. A simple layout is your best friend there.
