Could you be more specific about your requirement? Apr 17, 2005

PHP is a server-side scripting language and it is generally not normal to convert entire MSWord documents into PHP.

What PHP does is extract information residing in a server-side object like a database or file and presents it to the browser as HTML.

It appears that you are new to php. I suggest that you explore the php website:

http://www.php.net

where you will find all the explantions you need to use php.

You can also download the latest version of php from the site. To use php you should have access to a web server.

Regards.

Save as HTML Apr 17, 2005

The simplest and easiest way to convert a Word document is to save it as "web page."
For PHP, there is no need.

Simply insert the HTML converted document into the PHP file with html code.

start html code
..... other code
.... your html coded text
.....other code

//start php code
....
....your php code
....your php code
....

//end php code

end html code
(assuming that the file has ".php" extension.)

A word of caution: Saving a word document as web page (html) inserts plenty of garbage codes into the document which increases the size of resulting html file. You may clean up word (MS) specific code by using Dreamweaver.
Alternatively, you can copy text into MS Frontpage and format it directly in Frontpage which is also prone to increase the size of resulting web page.
