CorelDRAW gives you the tools to create professional-looking multipage Web documents. You can make your mark by using CorelDRAW to create documents that visually clarify concepts and that are easy to navigate.
Before you create your Web document, you should take some time to plan the structure of your document. Decide which elements in your document you want to emphasize and how you want visitors to move around within the document. You want to create a Web document that gets your message across, that is easy and intuitive to navigate, and is enjoyable to visit.
To ensure that the graphics in your document will display well on the World Wide Web, you need to choose an image type that Web browsers can read. The two most popular image types are Graphics Interchange Format (.GIF) and Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG or .JPG).
CorelDRAW provides various Internet objects, such as radio buttons, that you can use in your drawing. An important aspect to consider as you design your Web document is the positioning of objects to which you want to assign Uniform Resource Locators (URLs) and bookmarks, and of text that is to be HTML-compatible. When you're satisfied with the construction of your Web document, you can publish the document directly to HTML.
You can convert standard Paragraph text to HTML text so that you can edit the text of your published document in a Web browser. If you don't convert Paragraph text to HTML text before you publish your document to the Internet, the text is converted to a bitmap when published and cannot be edited in a browser. Artistic text cannot be converted to HTML text and is always treated as a bitmap.
After you convert standard Paragraph text to HTML text, you can select the font, size, and style for your text that is supported by HTML. The default HTML font is used automatically unless you override it with another font. Even if you choose to override it, the default font is used if visitors to your site don't have the same font installed on their computers. The usual text styles, including bold, italic, and underline, are also available. In addition, you can apply uniform fills, but not outlines, to HTML text.
