Microsoft has released an update to Microsoft Publisher 2002 that adds functionality to Publisher 2002. An additional feature, "Export as Web Page", provides the ability to export HTML without special information that is used only when the Web page is reopened (round tripped) inside Publisher 2002.
When you use the Export as Web Page command, the file sizes of your Microsoft Publisher Web pages are substantially smaller and download more quickly over slower Internet connections.
This article describes how to download and install the Publisher 2002 Update: June 21, 2001.
NOTE: This Public Update is part of the Microsoft Office XP Service Pack 1 (SP-1), but for your convenience the Public Update also is available individually, as described in the "More Information" section of this article. If you already applied Office XP SP-1, you do not need to apply this Public Update.

Changes Made by the UpdateThe update replaces the Save as Web Page command with Export as Web Page. The Export as Web Page command allows you to create smaller Web pages by omitting XML information and Office XP cascading style sheets (CSS) tags that are used to enable high-fidelity "round tripping". "Round tripping" is the ability to save a Publisher file (*.pub) as a Web page (*.htm), and then reopen the Web page as a Publisher file, without losing any Publisher features that are not directly supported by HTML.
NOTE: You can still save as high-fidelity HTML after the product update is applied. However, the process changes. To save as high-fidelity HTML, follow these steps:
