Advanced Tab of DocToHtml Converter Options Dialog

Optimize for this browser—this option lets you use a specific browser’s nonstandard capabilities. Just check the checkbox and select one of these major browsers: Internet Explorer, Firefox, or Opera. Use this option if you are targeting a specific browser. The web page will be displayed in other browsers too, but might look slightly different. For instance, if you select Internet Explorer, DocToHtml will use the leftmargin, rightmargin, topmargin, and bottommargin attributes of the body tag to specify page margins instead of generating an external HTML table, which would cover the whole document content and define these values. This approach produces more compact and logically clean HTML code, but as those attributes are only supported by Internet Explorer, the margins will not be displayed in other browsers.

Replace "doc" extension in hyperlinks with (either HTM or HTML)—if you set this option on, DocToHtml will modify each hyperlink in the input document if that hyperlink points to a MS Word document. This feature can be useful if you have a lot of cross-referenced Word documents in one folder and want to convert all of them into interlinked HTML pages.

Convert MS Word fields to JavaScript—this option lets you convert specific MS Word fields into JavaScript code. It may be useful to insert the current date or time, generate a TOC (Table of Contents), and so on. Currently, not every MS Word field can be converted into JavaScript. For more information, please read this topic.

Select Fields...— this button opens a dialog where you can select the fields to be converted into JavaScript code. For details, read this topic.

Update all field codes before converting—this option lets you ensure that all field codes are up to date.

Delete wasted bookmarks—this option tells DocToHtml to delete all wasted bookmarks before processing. A wasted bookmark is one that is not referenced anywhere in the document. Such useless bookmarks are sometimes inserted by MS Word, for example, when generating a TOC. If a wasted bookmark overrides a good one, DocToHtml may be unable to use the latter. The result may be a nonworking table of content in the output HTML document. So it is recommended to enable this option. Note that for safety reasons, DocToHtml does not modify your original document in any way. Also note that sometimes a bookmark is not used within a document, but is used by another document that references the former. If this is the case, you may want to disable this option.

Delete internal broken hyperlinks—this option tells DocToHtml to delete all broken hyperlinks before processing. A broken hyperlink is one that either points to nothing (has an empty target) or points to a nonexistent bookmark in the document. If a broken bookmark overrides a good one, DocToHtml may omit an actually working hyperlink from the output document. So it is recommended to enable this option. Note that for safety reasons, DocToHtml does not modify your original document in any way.

Auto detect external hyperlinks and e-mail addresses—this is a new option, turned on by default. When on, it searches for and converts any hyperlinks or e-mail addresses into corresponding hyperlinks, even if they are not marked as such in the original Word document. The search uses a regular expressions library. Currently DocToHtml can detect hyperlinks that begin with the HTTP, FTP, or HTTPS protocol specifications, or with the WWW prefix. Well-formed e-mail addresses with or without a preceding “mailto:” prefix are recognized too.

Use closing tags only when it is necessary—this option lets you exclude optional, as defined by the HTML specifications, closing tags from the output document, to reduce the file size and hence the downloading time. Some examples of optional end tags: </P>, </TR>, </TD>, </TH>, </THEAD>, </TBODY>, </LI>. In XHTML, closing tags are always required by the standard, so if you select XHTML as the output format, this option will be inactive.

Accept all tracked changes and Reject all tracked changes—these are mutually exclusive options. You can determine what to do with all tracked changes associated with the original MS Word document, and whether to include them in the output document. Please note that DocToHtml does not preserve information about tracked changes in the resulting HTML document. It is assumed that you have finished editing the document before publishing it on the Web.

Execute command after end of conversion—in the text field below, you can enter a command to be executed after the conversion is complete. For example, the command “notepad.exe !.!” (without quotes) will open the generated document’s source code in Notepad. DocToHtml will replace the !.! substring with the output document’s filename. You can also use the !-! substring to represent the output document’s filename in the 8.3 format for backward compatibility with some old but still good software. If you opt to split the output content by headings, please note that starting from version 1.07, DocToHtml applies the command to all parts, including the first one.

Do not preserve clipboard content—this option lets you choose between conversion speed and clipboard data safety. When processing images and some special characters, DocToHtml uses the clipboard. Be default, the program saves the clipboard content before each operation that involves the clipboard, and then restores its previous state. You can enable this option to speed up the conversion, but make sure that the clipboard does not contain any useful data.
