    I have been looking everywhere on the internet for a program that changes regular text to HTML, have been searching for HTML Editor.

    Example: I am creating a document on Apple Pages with pictures and text. What program can I use to change regular text and pictures into HTML format?
    I have tried Taco but everything is already in HTML.

    Please advise,

    Thanks in Advance

    To start with the simplest - try Mozilla Composer. Download Mozilla Seamonkey, it's what used to be Mozilla suite (browser, composer, email), and use it in composer mode.

    If you have iWeb try using that as it is a specialist tool

    As a note of warning: the web is a completely different medium to print. It is poor practice to create a traditional print layout and shoe-horn it into a web format.

    Also, is HTML a markup language and not a programming language, so shouldn't this be in the web forum?

    Stelex, thank you so much for the help..

    Elppa, if you don't mind me asking, how do I get to iWeb's specialist tool?

    um, no, he said iWeb IS a specialist tool. it's a WYSIWYG editor for websites.

    however, if you have a Pages document, and want to make it viewable online, you could either a) export as PDF or b) export as HTML from Pages. it's not going to be super fantastic markup (probably not very efficient/semantec) but it's probably the quickest way to do what you want?

    One major problem that I just discovered. Pages 3.0 (i.e. Pages '08) has gotten rid of "Export to HTML". Gone, poof. The only 'web' type export options are to "Export to PDF", or "Send to iWeb" which gives you the option of putting a PDF or a Pages document inside a blog entry in iWeb. (Not embedding them, but linking them.)

    This pisses me off. I had been doing my son's school schedule as an ultra-simple Pages document that I was plopping in my website's home directory. It was a microscopic little HTML file, just the schedule, with the teacher's names linked to their email addresses. Worked perfectly on every web browser I tried, including the WAP browser on my wife's cell phone. Now I can't do that, I can just export to PDF, which isn't nearly as 'universal' as Apple seems to think it is.

    HTML Editor? Learn to code by hand, and use something like Smultron. It's free and doesn't have any WYSIWYG features you can use as a crutch. I would probably recommend looking for replacement toolbar icons, though...the stock ones are AWFUL.
