Microsoft aims to make Web authoring and Web site management easier for businesses, in a move that could be taken as a threat to Web encoders.
All file components of Office 2000 can be saved into HTML format ready for publishing onto a Web page while Microsoft has also bundled FrontPage 2000 into the suite.
?It?s all geared to make life easier for companies to create and manage their own Web content,? said Outlook general manager Kurt DelBene, ?it enables users to round trip everything making companies much more self-sufficient.?
In his keynote speech at the Microsoft Office 2000 Deployment conference in Nice today, DelBene referred to a customer who had ?hundreds of Word documents that needed to be published on the Web. How many people was he employing to convert these files to HTML?? DelBene said Office 2000 would do all the conversion for him with the touch of a button, removing the need for HTML coders.
