Text Boxes Tab
This tab determines which properties of the inline text frames
will be converted.
First of all, make sure to turn on the “Convert
Inline Text Frames to (X)HTML <DIV> tags” option if
you want to get actual <DIV> blocks in the output document.
When this option is on, you can specify the formatting attributes
of text blocks to be preserved. Some
properties depend on others. For example, preserving the
horizontal position in some cases requires specifying the
width and margins of the generated DIV. So it is
safer just to enable all these options.
Currently DocToHtml does not save the
vertical position, because there is no HTML equivalent of
the way MS Word specifies it.
However, the program tries to preserve the Horizontal
position and the Text Wrapping mode whenever possible.
Text Wrapping will work correctly only if you have set the
Horizontal position to Left or Right, like in
the screenshot below. (The screenshot was taken in MS Word
2003. Other Word versions may display a slightly different
Text Wrapping will not work with any other value of
Horizontal Position, because HTML 4.01 (as well as
XHTML 1.0) doesn’t provide any way to specify the both-side
text-wrapping display mode. To correctly align DIVs, in many cases
the width attribute must also be set to Exactly a
The Auto Width and Auto
Height options relate to the case when the Width and
Height attributes were set to Auto in the above
MS Word 2003 dialog. In this case, DocToHtml will use the
min-width and min-height attributes to specify the
actual values of the current width and height.
Convert Text Boxes to inline text frames before
conversion—this option lets you also convert floating
Text Boxes. If it is turned on, the effect will be the same
as from clicking the “Convert To Frame...” button in the
Format Text Box dialog opened from MS Word’s
Format->Text Box menu.
Convert Header and Footer—this option
determines whether DocToHtml will process the Header and Footer
areas (text boxes at the top and at the bottom of each page,
respectively). They will be converted to DIVs with the HEADER and FOOTER IDs,
Do not include default Header and Footer
styles—this option, located at the bottom of the Tab, lets
you omit the default style specification for the Header and Footer
blocks from the generated CSS code (if you prefer to use your own
