Is there a program that allows client to create HTML document-
without having to see the HTML?

 5:42 pm on Aug 19, 2012 (gmt 0)

I have a client (restaurant) that sends me menu/monthly specials that I broadcast through AWeber about once a week. The client composes the menu in Word and I copy and paste it into my HTML editor, add formatting, and put it into AWeber along with publishing a Web version.

So I may cut down on the amount of work I do, is there some simple/inexpensive program that will allow me to provide the client with a template where they can add their content and basic formatting without having to see the HTML (and then I would just copy and paste the whole thing into AWeber will little or no editing)?

I've never used FrontPage and I understand FrontPage adds a lot of its own code (although it's not like I need these documents to validate, but I do need them to display properly in the majority of email clients).

Thank you, Leosghost -

In Word 2007 I don't see an "export" function - would that be the same as "Save As > Other formats"?

And if I used Word, how would I be able to create the HTML template?

Easy, make a copy of the menu minus the content that changes. Then you can save as html and don't save the changes on temp.doc so you can reuse it next week.(temp.doc is just an example name)

Make a copy of which - their Word document or the HTML document I create?

I think what would make things easy for you would be to get a freebie editor such as NVU at [net2.com...] and make up a file--name it what you will and have whoever writes up the word file for you just update this instead and email you the html file for AWeber. Anybody who can type a word doc could run this with ease. Sorry for misunderstanding you original intentions. Hope this helps.

Thank you, typomaniac. NVU doesn't have a 64-bit version - is there another similar program you could recommend?

Might want to check out some things like [windows7themes.net...] and then there is About.com--love that site-they have everything.... [webdesign.about.com...]

I'd use a CMS, so the client can update the menu content. then you can copy and paste the HTML into the site as needed.

(Or alternatively use a real CMS for the site so you don't have to get involved with updates at all?)
