Expanding CSS!
Pulling the styles from CSS and putting that into document!

Msg#: 989 posted 9:17 am on May 5, 2003 (gmt 0)

Dear friends

I'm looking for a way by which I can convert an HTML and CSS to a file, in which the styles will be expanded and put in each and every places where it is mentioned. I know that this is a weird and also a step-back process. But, I'm in need of such a Converter/Compressor, which will do this job.


<style type="text/css">
p {
font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif;
//With CSS
<p>1st paragraph</p>
<p>2nd paragraph</p>
<p>3rd paragraph</p>
//Without CSS
<p><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">1st paragraph</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">2nd paragraph</font></p>
<p><font face="Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif">3rd paragraph</font></p>

Not sure if this will help, but you might be able to do something with Internet Explorer's "Save As Web Archive (single file)" functionality.

This puts everything, css, images 'n' all into a single file. The resulting format is a hotch potch of HTML and MIME encoded content, but it might help you out.

Just browse to a web page on Internet Explorer, select "File ¦ Save As..." then choose "Web Archive, single file (*.mht)".

It didn't work. It gave me the same file but with lot of unnecessary text. Thank your for your suggestion. If anyone knows the solution, please help me.

I think you're going to need a home grown solution to this.
A script which parses the style sheet and then finds each element and class and inserts the appropriate rule.

Like you said, it's an odd request and while it would certainly be worth the time to do a search of the shareware sites on the off-chance you might find something, but I doubt if you're going to find anything that will do the job.

Yeah. I've got it. There is an application called "FILTRIX" which does this job. This option is also available in Dreamweaver(File -> Convert -> 3.0 Browser compatible)

Thank you all for your comments.
