When you publish your document to HTML, CorelDRAW creates an HTML document that appears identical to the source document when viewed in Web browsers. Also, you can choose to export the graphics in your document to either the JPEG or GIF image type format. All of these bitmaps are saved in an image folder of your choice — usually a subfolder of the source HTML folder.
For objects in your drawing that are assigned Uniform Resource Locators (URLs), CorelDRAW creates a reference to the object in the HTML document and automatically generates HTML codes that contain all of the information necessary to match the position of a cursor click to a specific URL.
When you publish your document as a single image, CorelDRAW creates an image map. An image map is a hypergraphic that links to different URLs when you view the HTML document with a browser. When you click an image map, the HTML document to which it is linked appears. An image map graphic is made up of an image and a series of coordinates describing the location of the hotspots on the image. When you publish your CorelDRAW document as a single image, you can export the graphics in your document to the JPEG or GIF image type format. You can also choose to export any imported bitmaps at a resolution of 96 dots per inch (dpi).
