Word Web Feature Creating a Web Page Using Word
Saving a Word Document as a Web Page
Once you have created a Word document, you can save it as a Web page so that it can be
published and then viewed in a Web browser, such as Internet Explorer. When you save a
ﬁ le as a Web page, Word converts the contents of the document into HTML (hypertext
markup language), which is a language that browsers can interpret. Some of Word’s
formatting features are not supported by Web pages. Thus, your Web page may look slightly
different from the original Word document.
When saving a document as a Web page, you have three choices in Word:
• The single ﬁ le Web page format saves all of the components of the Web page in a
single ﬁ le that has an .mht extension. This format is particularly useful for e-mailing
documents in HTML format.
• The Web Page format saves some of the components of the Web page in a folder,
separate from the Web page. This format is useful if you need access to the individual
components, such as images, that make up the Web page.
• The ﬁ ltered Web Page format saves the ﬁ le in Web page format and then reduces
the size of the ﬁ le by removing speciﬁ c Microsoft Ofﬁ ce formats. This format is
useful if you want to speed up the time it takes to download a Web page that contains
many graphics, video, audio, or animations.
The Web page in this feature uses the single ﬁ le Web page format.
