Notes de l'éditeur
Tip Avoid placing objects on master pages in your Web publication. Objects that are placed on Office Publisher 2007 master pages do not display correctly when they are viewed in some Web browsers.
To see more color choices, click More colors, and then select the options that you want.
To use a gradient, texture, pattern, picture, or tint, click More backgrounds, and then select the options that you want. Tip To use a texture or picture of your own, click Other Texture on the Texture tab or click Select Picture on the Picture tab, and then locate the file for the texture or picture that you want.
If you select a picture for a background, the picture is repeated (or tiled) to create the background texture for your Web pages.
If you select a custom picture file for your background texture, make sure it is 20 kilobytes (KB) or smaller. Large picture files will require people who are viewing your Web site to wait a long time for the graphic to download.
Avoid changing the background on master pages in your Web publication. Effects that are applied to Office Publisher 2007 master pages do not display correctly when they are viewed in some Web browsers.
When you add a background sound to a Web page in Microsoft Office Publisher, the sound plays when you view your Web page in a browser. The background sound will not play when you view the Web page in Publisher.
Before you publish your Web site, check to make sure that the site will work as you expect and that you have addressed all possible issues that may arise.
You can look for problems by using the Design Checker and previewing your site.
Use the Design Checker to find and fix problems
The Design Checker is a powerful tool for finding potential problems. Many of its checks are for basic formatting issues. However, some checks are specifically for issues that may affect Web publications. To run the Design Checker, do the following:
Note Make sure that the Run commercial printing checks check box is not selected.
The automatic fix will vary, depending on the problem. In most cases, no automatic fix is available.
You can then correct the problem by making any necessary changes.
Clicking this option affects all instances of the problem.
Note If you want to add your Web site to a new folder, click New Folder on the toolbar to create a new folder, type a name for the new folder, and then press ENTER.
Note Index.htm is the default selection. Selecting index as the name of your home page makes it easier to access and prevents users from viewing a list of the files that make up your Web site.
After you publish your Web site, you can update it as needed to reflect new information. However, you cannot open the filtered HTML files in Publisher. You must open the original Web publication, make the changes that you want, and then republish your site to the Web.
Note You should not try to update the Filtered HTML files by using a text editor, such as Microsoft Notepad or Microsoft WordPad. Even though it is possible to do this, Publisher-generated HTML is very complex, and you will probably find it hard to edit it by hand. For best results, always update your Publisher Web site by using the Web publication and then republish it to the Web.
Publish only what has changed
In Office Publisher 2007, you can publish updates to a previously published Web site quickly by using incremental publish to the Web, which publishes only those pages that you have updated. If you plan to update your Web site often, or if your Web site is large and complex, incremental publish to the Web can speed up the task of updating your Web site.
If you make changes to your Web site directly on a Web server outside of Office Publisher 2007, however, turning on incremental publish to the Web may prevent you from publishing subsequent updates to your Web site by using the Publish to the Web command. If you plan to manage your Web site files directly on the Web server (such as through a separate FTP program), you should turn off incremental publish to the Web.
Note Incremental publish to the Web is turned on by default in Publisher.
Turn incremental publish to the Web on or off
Publishing updates to a Web site is slightly different from publishing a Web site for the first time. After you publish a Web site to a location on the Web or a network, a shortcut to the Web server or network server appears in My Network Places.
Note If the selected picture is an OLE object, the Picture toolbar does not automatically appear. To display the Picture toolbar, point to Toolbars on the View menu, and then click Picture.
Note You can also select other compression output options, depending on your publication needs. For more information, see Compress Pictures dialog box.
