Join Michael Murphy for an in-depth discussion in this video HTML preparation checklist, part of InDesign CS6: HTML.
The good news, as we saw in the previous movie,…is that great looking HTML export from InDesign is entirely possible.…But getting there requires some up front work on your part.…And it helps a lot if you know a bit about…the CSS that will format your exported content, especially its class names.…Just like you would perform a handful of steps to prepare…a print layout for your printer, you need to prepare for HTML.…Here's a checklist for optimally preparing your print layouts for HTML export.…
First, use styles for everything.…If you're not using styles on all of your text and layout…elements, you're already fighting a losing battle when it comes to HTML.…Organized, consistently styled print layouts are the only…way to get organized, consistently styled web content.…You then…need to connect your text styles to HTML tags and CSS classes with Export Tagging.…What you call a headline style, body copy style or italic style doesn't…get automatically translated to an appropriate HTML tag or CSS class.…
That's up to you.…
