Conversion to HTML

Conversion to HTML


A work in progress


Although OpenOffice/LibreOffice offers saving of .odt file as HTML, the WebPublish is also equipped with HTML conversion since it still can generate a slightly better output. The difference can be found comparing two output files printed as PDF, first generated by WebPublish and another saved to HTML directly in OpenOffice Writer.


The WebPublish HTML profile has parameters shown in Fig. 1. and explained in the following table:


Fig. 1: HTML profile settings



Profile name

Document title style

Output document scaling factor in percentage of original value. For example, if original font size is 12 pts with scaling set to 75% resulting font size is 9 pts.


Convert to pixels

Use this option to specify displayed units that can in millimeters (mm) or pixels (px). Conversion to pixels depends of above mentioned Scaling.

For example, generated .Caption style without this option has margin attributes specified in mm:


.Caption { text-align: center; margin-top: 2.12mm; margin-bottom: 2.12mm; font-size: 10.0pt; font-style: italic; }


… and with this option pixels are used for units:


.Caption { text-align: center; margin-top: 8.0126px; margin-bottom: 8.0126px; font-size: 10.0pt; font-style: italic; }
