How do you make an English text (ASCII) or HTML version of your resume/CV?
Thanks.

For conversion of .doc files to plain ASCII text I'd suggest to use antiword ( http://www.winfield.demon.nl/ ).

To create an HTML document you can use OpenOffice (File>New>HTML document and paste your text) or you can use Mozilla Suite ( http://www.mozilla.org/products/mozilla1.x/ ) which includes HTML editor.

Thanks.
There are 2 versions to download for antiword. Which version I shoud download? After you download it, you get zip file and you open antiword file, then you get all different files together. So you choose antiword file and open it? What do you do with this download file?

Mozilla Suite is having the security warning message popped up saying 'The publisher isn't verified. Do you still want to run it?' Just go ahead and run this?
Thanks again

Can you explain "make" Aug 25, 2005

Do you mean create a new one, or convert an existing Word document to text or HTML?

How to convert files into ASCII Aug 26, 2005

Hi, Saulius7 and Alaa,

Found out how. Just go to MS Word. Click Save and find 'Plain text'instead of usual 'Word document.' So when you save it, save it with 'Plain text(.txt.)' which is ASCII.
Some companies ask for this version since with this file, they don't get virus.

Save or Save as ... Aug 26, 2005

That's why I asked if it's an existing file. If you're working with an existing file, you probably meant "Save As ..." as opposed to "Save". I am glad you solved your problem.

Converting .doc to text, will make the file less likely to carry a virus, but it is not a guarantee. Both sender and receiver should run a antivirus program with an updated virus definition file. The sender should configure the program to scan incoming and outgoing email for viruses.
