Save a document in HTML format

To convert a FrameMaker document to HTML, simply save it as an HTML file. Saving as HTML sets up definitions for how each FrameMaker format will convert, or map, to an HTML element. You can also save a whole book as HTML. (See Convert books to HTML files.)

FrameMaker automatically creates the mappings of formats to HTML elements upon initial conver­sion to HTML, but you can fine-tune them, and make further customizations, by creating conver­sion macros. For information, see Set up and adjust HTML mappings and Fine-tuning mappings by editing reference pages.

Even if you plan to fine-tune the conversion, you should begin by saving as HTML. You can then fine-tune the automatic mappings as needed.

1)Choose File > Save As and choose HTML from the pop-up menu.

2)Give the filename an extension of .html, specify the file location, and click Save. The converted file is saved where you specified.

3)Open the HTML file in a Web browser to examine the converted file. If it meets with your approval, you are done.

To refine some mappings, continue by following the steps in Set up and adjust HTML mappings.
