How to Create a Web Page Using Microsoft Office

by Jeffrey Ober

Web pages are created using a programming language called Hypertext Markup Language, or HTML. While this language is relatively simple, consisting of code tags surrounding words, you don't have to learn HTML to make your own web page. There are a number of different programs that you can use that will write all the HTML language tags for you---Microsoft Word, included with Microsoft Office, is one program that will do that for you simply and easily.

Start Microsoft Word by going the "Start" menu, searching in "Programs" for Microsoft Office, and from there, opening Microsoft Word.

Type your web page according to your plan. Use all the usual formatting and style options that you would use while typing with Word.

Click on "File, Save As" to open the "Save As" dialog box.

Type in the name of your web page in the first box at the bottom of the window.

In the box below your file name, click on the drop-down arrow and change the "Save As type" to "Web Page (*.htm; *.html)".
