BeyondPress byAstrobyte Online is a powerful commercial XTension for converting QuarkXPress for Macintosh documents into HTML. During export, special and accented characters are converted automatically, as are text attributes such as bold and italic, and paragraph alignment. BeyondPress converts images to JPEG or GIF format, cropping them as in the QuarkXPress layout. Users can choose the image scale of their QuarkXPress document, specify a new scale for the image, and click on the colors of an image to make those colors transparent. Users can also convert a QuarkXPress text box into an image, and place the image in the HTML text. BeyondPress also allows users to create hypertext links in their QuarkXPress documents, which are exported to the HTML page. After arranging content elements and mapping style sheets, users can preview the HTML page directly in their favorite Web browser and then export the page and all associated images. For plenty more information, from which this brief was gleaned, visit the BeyondPress home page at http://www.astrobyte.com/Astrobyte/BeyondPressInfo.html which contains Astrobyte's press release for BeyondPress. As mentioned, you can download a copy of the demo which remains functional for 30 days. To obtain a full version, fill out this order form.

Excel to HTML

Excel to HTML is an AppleScript program that converts an Excel for Mac spreadsheet into HTML3 tables, preserving such formatting as bold, italic, and left / center / right alignment. The following HTML features may be added and customized: cell borders and widths; cell padding; empty cell borders; and table captions. The original cell contents are not altered, so URLs in the original spreadsheet become active in the converted table; this is particularly useful for pointing to images. The Excel to HTML home page can be found at http://www.rhodes.edu/software/readme.html, and contains links to send mail to the author, R. Trenthem and download the software.

The HTML Markdown home page is at http://htc.rit.edu/markdown.html. You can download the program from ftp://htc.rit.edu/pub/HTML-Markdown-101.hqx.
