Publisher is designed to make it easy for you to create good looking Web sites. Publisher tries, as much as possible, to make Web pages that appear the way the publication appears in Publisher.

However, there are some features of the HyperText Markup Language (HTML) that Publisher does not directly support. If you want to add these features to a Web site created in Publisher, you have these choices:
  • Open the Web site in an HTML authoring program, such as Microsoft FrontPage.
  • Insert a code fragment that will only be displayed when you preview or publish your document. You can do this by clicking HTML Code Fragment on the Insert menu.
  • Use a text editor, such as Notepad, to add the HTML code manually.


The major HTML features that Publisher does not directly support are:
  • Marquee (animated) text
  • HTML Frames
  • Scripts (VBScript, Java, and JavaScript)
If you want to create a Web site that uses these features, you can insert code fragments to utilize some of the HTML features that are not directly supported by Publisher. To do this, click HTML Code Fragment on the Insert menu and enter your custom code. Note that this code will not be checked for accuracy. For more advanced HTML code, copy the HTML code from Publisher into another HTML authoring program to add customized effects.
